Colombian Duque's Bid to Change Peace Deal Rattles Sabers

According to Reuters, President Ivan Duque’s call for changes to key peace legislation has prompted former rebels to warn he has put Colombia on the path to war.

However, with his government on a weak footing in Congress, major revisions that could reignite conflict seem unlikely.

Duque last week objected to six out of 159 articles in the law implementing a 2016 peace deal with the FARC guerrillas and said he will return it to congress.
