Colombia elections: The FARC's hard road to parliament

In Colombia, elections are fast approaching and for the first time ever, the vote will see members of the ex-guerrilla movement FARC run for Congress. The FARC rebels fought the government for over 50 years in a conflict that left more than 260,000 people dead. But a peace deal two years ago helped turn the FARC into a political party that now has dozens of former fighters running for office.

Also, there were a lot of sad Parisian football fans as PSG got shut out of Europe's Champions League for the second year in a row. Some say the loss was due to the absence of star player Neymar, who watched the game from his home country of Brazil, where he's recovering from surgery for a broken toe. But the media frenzy over Neymar's stay in an ultra-modern clinic has got many Brazilians angry that the attention is focused on the wrong place - we tell you more.

Meanwhile, in the US, the revolving door spun again this week at the Trump administration. The turnover of Trump's staff has been higher than any White House in decades.The latest departure was that of top economic advisor Gary Cohn. He quit after Trump threatened new trade tariffs on imports of aluminium and steel.

And two years ago, the environmental activist Berta Caceres was killed in Honduras. She was murdered for taking a stance against the building of a hydraulic dam. On the very day of the second anniversary of her death, her alleged assassin was arrested.
