Colombian rebel groups hold rare peace talks

Tuesday, July 2, 2013


The top commanders of Colombia's two biggest rebel groups met in secret to discuss ways to bolster the nation's "guerrilla and revolutionary" movement, It is a sign the insurgent groups may be seeking to pressure the government for a joint peace effort.

The FARC and the ELN, which have fought each other for control of drug trafficking routes but maintained a distance in recent years, discussed issues such as "deep changes to society, the economy and politics".
