A ceremony marking the disarmament of Latin America's oldest guerilla movement is taking place in the central Colombian town of Mesetas. Marxist FARC militants are laying down the last of their weapons. But obstacles remain on the path to peace. The FARC still has arms caches, there are other armed groups in the jungle, and the leftist ELN finds itself in the path of right-wing paramilitaries with an eye on the drug trade. Is this really a farewell to arms?
