Colombia: Cease fire

The best news out of Colombia. Tomorrow Thursday, the government of Colombia and the FARC-EP are set to announce a formal, bilateral and definitive cease-fire.

Read about it in real media, not IKN. Heads-up on the historic moment complete.

UPDATE: The Graun has an English language report that covers all the main parts. Here's how it starts:
The Colombian government and leftist Farc rebels have announced that they have reached a deal on a bilateral ceasefire that would be the last major step toward ending one of the world’s longest wars.
President Juan Manuel Santos will travel to Cuba on Thursday for the announcement with the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or Farc.
The UN secretary general, Ban Ki-moon, announced he would also be present to witness the signing of the deal.
