A family sits in stunned silence after hearing that Colombia's peace deal had failed to pass by a public vote. People had gathered in Plaza de Bolivar expecting to celebrate - polls showed the vote would pass by a large margin, making the loss shocking as well as disappointing.
Those who voted no argue the deal gives far too much leeway to the FARC, including amnesty and seats in both chambers of Congress. #Colombia#plazadebolivar#plebiscite#bogota#nofilter
After hearing that the Colombian peace deal had failed to pass by public vote, Diego, 18, wept and yelled openly in Plaza de Bolivar, calling for the Colombian people and the FARC to find common ground to end a 52-year war.

Venezuelans cross into Colombia to buy basic goods such as food, medicine and toilet paper as their country's economy continues to crumble, leaving supplies scarce. People travel for hours or days carrying empty suitcases to fill with food to bring home to their families. One border official told me as many as 60,000 people cross through on a busy day, then told me not to ask again. The border is loose and chaotic enough, however, that keeping a precise count does not seem like a top concern. #venezuela#colombia#border#journalism
