On July 10, Human Rights Watch issued a public letter to Manuel Marulanda, the commander-in-chief of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia-People's Army (known as the FARC), Colombia's main rebel group. Based on a HRW mission to territory in Colombia under the FARC's control, the letter details serious abuses committed by the FARC, including extrajudicial executions, abductions, and the use of child soldiers.
