The Colombian government and leftist Farc
rebels have announced that they have reached a deal on a bilateral
ceasefire that would be the last major step toward ending one of the
world’s longest wars.

President Juan Manuel Santos will travel to Cuba on Thursday for the announcement with the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or Farc.
The UN secretary general, Ban Ki-moon, announced he would also be present to witness the signing of the deal.
