Colombia struck a peace deal with guerrilla groups years ago. So why is violence surging?

This year kicked off with a violent start on the Colombia-Venezuela border, where dissident militant factions have been competing for territorial control of lucrative drug routes that connect the South American country to the US and Europe.
