Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos ordered on Tuesday a temporary cessation of bombing against the FARC in the peace process with the Marxist guerrillas. This truce should last a month. The FARC, which lead peace talks with the government since November 2012, decreed a unilateral and indefinite cease-fire. The head of the state, which had so far ruled out any military truce, said the temporary cessation of bombing responded to this gesture of the guerrillas. "We must recogniSe that they honour their commitment," he said.
