The Colombian government and the Farc rebels have signed a historic ceasefire deal, bringing them closer to ending more than five decades of conflict.

The agreement is expected to pave the way for a full peace deal.

Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos and Farc leader Timochenko shook hands at a ceremony in the Cuban capital.

The longest-running insurgency in the Western Hemisphere has killed an estimated 220,000 people and displaced almost seven million.

Today's announcement caps formal peace talks that started three years ago in the Cuban capital.

The agreement includes a timetable for laying down arms and a number of guarantees for the security of the guerrillas when they disarm.

It establishes temporary transition zones and camps for the estimated 7,000 rebels. It also says the UN will receive all the group's weapons.

Both sides still need to establish how the peace deal in its totality will be implemented, verified and approved.

The government also wants to put the deal to a popular vote.
