Colombia holds huge concert to mark report into armed conflict


Around 16,000 people gathered in Bogotá’s Simón Bolívar Park to perform a concert to pay tribute to the victims of the country’s armed conflict.

Thousands of musicians from different orchestras, philharmonics and schools performed Beethoven’s 9th Symphony and other music to mark a report looking into human rights abuses during the conflict.

It is thought that about 260,000 people were killed and millions displaced as left-wing rebels fought against Colombia’s security forces and right-wing paramilitaries.
