This TV grab taken from youtube and released on August 29, 2019 shows former senior commanders of the dissolved FARC rebel army group in Colombia, Ivan Marquez(C) and fugitive rebel colleague, Jesus Santrich(wearing sunglasses), on an undisclosed location announcing that they are taking up arms again along with other guerrillas who have distanced themselves from a peace accord signed with the government in 2016. Marquez, Marxist FARC's number two leader and chief negotiator of the 2016 peace agreement, had been unknown for more than a year. With UN support, the peace accord ended the insurrection by the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia and turned it into a political party.
