Colombia Peace
People pass by a poster that in Spanish reads “People vote yes for peace” in Cartagena, Colombia, Tuesday, Sept. 27, 2016, the day after the government signed a peace agreement with the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, FARC, to end over 50 years of conflict.

The first test is a referendum this weekend in which voters are being asked to ratify or reject the deal. (AP Photo/Ariana Cubillos)
