The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

BO­GOTA: Colom­bian Pres­i­dent Juan Manuel Santos said yes­ter­day that the cease­fire with the FARC gueril­las will be ex­tended un­til Oct 31. “I hope that by then we can fi­nalise the agree­ment and end the con­flict,” he said. Colom­bians on Sun­day voted against the pro­posed agree­ment in a ref­er­en­dum, mak­ing the fu­ture of the cease­fire un­cer­tain. Santos will meet with lead­ers of the cam­paign against the peace ac­cord to­day, in an at­tempt to sal­vage the deal through na­tional di­a­logue. – dpa
