Inside Terrorism: The Wealth and Influence of Terror

Terrorism can be a very complicated and controversial topic to discuss as it is merely an umbrella term for many concepts. Concepts ranging from political, financial, to religious causes.

Peace Treaty in Shambles? Colombian Rebels Kill Journalists

Javier Ortega, Paul Rivas and Efraín Segarra, three Ecuadorian journalists who wanted to investigate a spike of violence in Mataje, a river located between Colombia and Ecuador, but got killed by Colombian rebels just a few days ago. Months ago, Juan Manuel Santos, the Colombian President, arranged a peace treaty with the most prominent rebel group, FARC. Colombian people didn’t completely agree with it because, among other points, the deal allowed FARC members to legally participate in political events, and after almost 50 years of violence for drugs, power, and territory, they are not welcomed with open arms.
