Women call off Colombia sex ban

From the BBC:

The girlfriends of gang members in one of Colombia's most violent cities have called off a sex strike aimed at ending a deadly gang feud. Women in the city of Pereira launched the "cross-legged strike" 10 days ago.
Pereira's security chief hailed the strike as a success, saying the women had shown they could win with what he described as "very noble weapons."
