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.
