Voters in Columbia went to polls on Sunday to elect a new Congress, and will vote for a new president in May.

It is widely expected that whoever succeeds president Alvaro Uribe as Colombia's next president will continue his tough security policies, which have seriously weakened the country's largest rebel group, the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (Farc).

But as fighting continues against the separatists, it is often civilians who are caught in the firing line.
