Description : An ICRC Pasto field team returns to the city of Pasto after having spent 4 days in the region of Policarpa municipality, an area affected by armed conflict and the presence of improvised explosive devices and explosive remnants of war.

Colombia's armed conflict is one of the longest in modern history. More than forty years have passed and no end is in sight. Over three million Colombians have fled their homes, becoming the second largest population of internally displaced in the world, after Sudan. The photographer, Marçal Izard, who started to work as an ICRC delegate in Colombia in 2000 is returning in the country 10 years later. He realized that the vicious cycle of death threats and forced displacement goes on.
