Columbia extends ceasefire with FARC rebels

Colombian president Juan Manuel Santos has extended a ceasefire with FARC rebels until the end of the year to give more time to save a peace deal.

The accord, signed with the left-wing rebel group last month, was narrowly rejected in a national referendum.

Mr Santos has spent the past few days meeting those who campaigned for a “NO” vote..

The original ceasefire ended with the referendum and has already been extended until 31 October.

Mr Santos was awarded the Nobel peace prize for reaching the peace agreement, which took more than four years to negotiate.
