ICRC warns Colombia conflict victims 'forgotten'





The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) has warned that Colombians caught up in the civil conflict there are in danger of being forgotten.

Fighting has shifted from densely populated areas to remote regions where the fate of tens of thousands of people is almost invisible, the ICRC says.

ICRC staff recorded 800 alleged human rights violations last year, including murder and sexual violence.

Left-wing rebel groups have fought the Colombian government since the 1960s.
