Colombia Farc ceasefire starts after deadly attack

“The group unexpectedly announced on Wednesday that it would begin a truce for an unlimited time from Saturday. The move has been welcomed by the UN and the European Union. However, Colombia’s government said it would not join the rebels in the truce. Hours ahead of the ceasefire, the army said Farc had killed five soldiers in an ambush. The rebels attacked a patrol in a rural area of western Colombia. President Juan Manuel Santos described Farc’s ceasefire declaration as a ‘gift… full of thorns’. “
