Colombia : The Colombian government and the country’s largest rebel group, the Farc, have signed a revised peace deal.

The previous deal was rejected by the Colombian people in a popular vote on 2 October.

The revised agreement has been submitted to Congress for approval, rather than put to a popular vote.

The deal is aimed at ending five decades of armed conflict, which has killed more than 260,000 people and left millions internally displaced.
