Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia's (FARC) lead negotiator Ivan Marquez smokes a Cohiba cigar next to FARC negotiator Jesus Santrich (R) after a conference in Havana February 10, 2013. Colombia and the Marxist FARC rebels said on Sunday their talks aimed at ending half a century of conflict are picking up pace and making progress towards an agreement on land reform, a key point in the peace process. Speaking as they ended their latest round of negotiations in the Cuban capital, they signalled that public acrimony they had displayed in recent weeks did not represent what was happening behind closed doors. Rodrigo Granda, a senior leader of the FARC, said the discussions were moving ahead on the “right track” and “at the speed of a bullet train.” REUTERS/Enrique De La Osa (CUBA - Tags: POLITICS CIVIL UNREST)
