bogota - Rebellion group ELN and the Colombian government have agreed a ceasefire. That has made ELN known via Twitter. The deal is a tribute to Pope Franciscus who visits this country this week.
ELN was founded by radical Catholic priests. The ceasefire will last for at least 102 days, announced by President Santos of Colombia. ELN is especially famous in the Netherlands because of the kidnapping of television maker Derk Bolt.
Abduction is the trademark of the ELN. With the rebel group FARC, the government closed peace in 2016. Santos received the Nobel Peace Prize for this.
