Guerrillas responsible for 17% of civilian deaths in Colombia’s armed conflict

Leftist guerrilla groups are responsible for almost 17% of the civilians who were killed in Colombia’s armed conflict, according to the country’s most comprehensive study to date.

The National Center for Historical Memory (CMMH) surrendered its report to the Special Jurisdiction for Peace (JEP), the transitional justice tribunal that is trying to provide justice to the millions of Colombians who were victimized in the conflict.

In total, the report said, 262,197 people were killed, of which 80% were civilians who had nothing to do with the armed conflict.
