Via the BBC:  Colombia’s new defence minister Pinzon vows action:

Colombia’s new defence minister, Juan Carlos Pinzon, has been sworn in, with orders to give the "final blow" to the Farc rebel group.

Mr Pinzon is an economist, a former deputy defence minister, and a close ally of President Juan Manuel Santos.

He was brought in to replace Rodrigo Rivera, amid a growing perception that security gains are being reversed.
