Wave of massacres signals new chapter in Colombia's conflict

University students march holding a poster with a message that reads in Spanish: "Who killed them?" during a demonstration against a wave of massacres, in Bogota, Colombia, Monday, Sept. 21, 2020. Rather than a national dispute between guerrillas and the state, violence in rural Colombia is now marked by a patchwork of local feuds between criminal groups who fight over drug routes, illegal mines and even gasoline smuggling routes.
