FARC Admits Shared Responsibility for Colombia Bloodshed

Peace negotiations ongoing


Colombia's largest guerrilla group admitted for the first time on Tuesday that it shared blame for the suffering of victims, in a key moment of ongoing negotiations to end Latin America's longest-running armed conflict.

"Without a doubt there has also been cruelty and pain provoked by our forces," said rebel negotiator Pablo Catatumbo, reading from a statement in Cuba, where the peace talks between the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) and the government began in November.
