Colombian leaders announced a new peace deal in Havana on Friday, which they hope will answer voters’ rejection of the previous one, which sought to end a 52-year-long civil war with FARC rebels. Some voters said the previous agreement was too lenient with the rebels, giving them amnesty and automatic seats in Parliament – but it was also undermined by anti-Gay Roman Catholics and Pentecostals seeking to topple the government.
