Negotiators from the National Liberation Army (ELN) rebel group say they have agreed a temporary ceasefire with the Colombian government, the BBC reports.

It is the first time the two sides have agreed a ceasefire in more than 50 years of conflict.

The announcement comes less than 48 hours before Pope Francis is due to visit Colombia.

Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos said the truce would begin on 1 October and would last until 12 January.
