FLORENCIA, COLOMBIA:  Two armed soldiers belonging to the Revolutionry Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) monitor the Berlin pass, 07 March, near Florencia, in the  southern Caqueta province of Colombia, where cars are prevented from going through after the rebels decreed 06 March a ban on "travel on roads and waterways for six days". The rebels try to dissuade voters from casting their ballots in the 08 March elections for congress. According to the rebels, the elections 08 March are illegitimate because the left has been forced out of national politics, following the murder over the past years of thousands of Colombia's left-wing politicians and supporters.
