For Colombian guerrillas on the run from the army, crying babies were considered a security risk. That's why during the country's half-century-long guerrilla war, women – who make up about one-third of rebel forces – rarely gave birth.

    But under a peace treaty, fighting between Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia — the Marxist rebel group known as the FARC — and the Colombian government has ended. And that's led to a rebel baby boom.
