Colombia's FARC rebels announce ceasefire

Thursday, December 18, 2014

Colombia's Marxist FARC rebels have declared an indefinite unilateral ceasefire beginning on December 20 which they have promised to end if they come under attack by government forces, the group said.

"We have resolved to declare a unilateral ceasefire and to end hostilities for an indefinite time," the FARC said in a statement.

The government has refused the FARC's demand for a two-way truce since the sides began peace talks in Cuba in late 2012 which are now roughly half complete, casting doubt on the viability of a ceasefire if the government does not reciprocate.
