A street scene in the Soacha neighbourhood of Bogota. There are between 500,000 and 800,000 registered IDPs (Internally Displaced Persons) in Bogota, but there are many more who are not a part of the official statistics. The Soacha district is one of the largest, with almost 400,000 inhabitants, most of the displaced people are from other parts of Colombia. Violence is a huge problem, and the people who fled due to violence and threats, are experiencing the same level of hostility in Bogota. The paramilitary and the army are a strong presence in the slums around the town.
