Colombia Talks To End Insurgency

Listen in pop-out player

Talks between Colombian government and ELN left-wing rebels aim to end half a century of conflict. So who are the ELN, and why are some people opposed to any dialogue with them? We hear from journalist Rodrigo Pardo and opposition party senator Ivan Duque.

Also in the programme, veteran US ambassador Dennis Ross on Israel's plan to legalise settlements on private Palestinian land, and a glimpse of an anti-multicultural village in Hungary.
