Colombia signed a peace deal with FARC rebels last November. But large swathes of the county are still mired in violence, as smaller armies try to gain control of the territory. Manuel Rueda reports from Buenaventura.

Luper Riasco feels homesick as he walks around a basketball stadium that has become his temporary shelter.

Thirty-two families from his village are now living under the stadium's hot concrete stands. There are no walls to separate them. Everyone sleeps on mattresses that are laid next to each other on the floor.

"We all come from the same village, but each of us is used to having their own house, with different rooms," says Riasco, who is living in the stadium with his wife and four kids. "Here you you have no privacy, you don't have any intimacy," he complains.
