HAVANA (Reuters) - The Colombian government and leftist rebels will renew peace talks this month, officials from guarantor nations Cuba and Norway said on Wednesday.

Colombia had suspended the two-year-old peace talks taking place in Cuba while the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) had captured an army general, Ruben Dario Alzate.

The rebels freed Alzate on Sunday after holding him for two weeks.
