After 52 years of civil war, the Colombian government and rebel group Farc (Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia) signed a ceasefire agreement. The truce is expected to be the prelude to a final peace agreement that should be signed by July. More importantly, it brings to a close more than five decades of bloody conflict that has left over 200,000 dead and millions displaced.
The peace treaty, which has been widely debated in Colombia, has been negotiated in Cuba since 2012, leading many to believe the accord would never be signed.
But Thursday, war-weary Colombians, including many artists, celebrated the treaty.
