BOGOTA (Reuters) - Colombia's Marxist FARC rebels have declared an indefinite unilateral ceasefire "which should transform into an armistice," the group said in a statement posted on its website on Wednesday.

The FARC is in the midst of peace talks with the government to end five decades of war which have killed more than 220,000 people.
