The main leftist rebel group in Colombia, the Farc, has ordered all its fighters to observe a ceasefire from midnight local time on Monday.

The ceasefire brings to an end the group's 52-year-old war, one of the world's longest insurgencies, after four years of peace talks in Cuba.

The final peace agreement will be signed in the next few weeks.

Farc leader Rodrigo Londono, known as Timoleon Jimenez or Timochenko, gave the order to stop firing.
