Colombia's government and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia — or FARC — have agreed to a new peace deal after six weeks of negotiations.
The new agreement comes after Colombia's citizens narrowly voted to reject the original deal, which many thought was too lenient on the rebels.
The deal removes some of those leniencies by listing explicit punishments for FARC leaders' crimes and preventing foreign judges from presiding over FARC trials.
