Colombians starve as funds to combat COVID-19 crisis embezzled

Colombia’s government has announced that its lockdown will be extended for another two weeks until May 11.

But, as Al Jazeera’s Alessandro Rampietti reports, people are going hungry in Bogota.

With the local and the national government struggling to reach all those in need, many have resorted to hanging red rags from their windows to signal they need help.
