Colombia: Cauca locals fear spread of violence in the region - part 1

As Colombia’s peace deal between the government and the Farc rebels advances, violence is spreading in the former Farc stronghold of Cauca, a region west of the capital Bogota. Locals fear armed gangs or right-wing death squads will take control of their land.

Illegal mining and coca farming – the raw ingredient for cocaine – and the profits that come with it -- make Cauca a tempting target for these type of gangs.

Now, some communities there, are taking matters into their own hands.

Emily Wright reports from the town of Corinto.
