The Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) gave their "unanimous backing" Friday to a historic peace deal with the government to end their 52-year conflict, their chief peace negotiator said.

"The war is over," said Ivan Marquez at a national conference of the FARC to vote on the deal and relaunch the group as a political party. "The guerrillas... have given their unanimous backing to the final accord."
