War in Colombia

10-10-2016 15:00

Colombia is in a war. The war is 52 years long. It is the Colombian government versus Marxist rebels. More than 220,000 people die in this war. Millions of people are displaced.

The Colombian President works to end the war. People give him a Nobel Peace Prize for his work. He says that it is not just for him. It is for all Colombians.

Difficult words: government (leaders of a country), displace (make somebody leave his or her home because of war), prize (a thing which people give you for your good work).
