The Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, known as the FARC, are the oldest guerrilla group in Latin America and could be living their last days in the jungle before possibly being re-incorporated as a political group.

President Juan Manuel Santos officially announced today that the Colombian government and the armed group FARC will sign a bilateral ceasefire agreement during peace talks in Havana, Cuba. A historic step towards an end to the 50-year-old conflict.
