The Colombian government and FARC guerrillas said Thursday they have agreed at peace talks to set up a truth commission to probe crimes committed during the country's half-century conflict.
"The government and the FARC have reached an agreement to put in place, once the final (peace) accord is signed, a Commission for the Clarification of the Truth... which will be an independent and impartial body of an extra-judicial nature," the two sides said in a joint statement read at the close of their latest round of talks in Havana.
