Colombia's FARC rebels hopeful for peace deal

Rebels say it will take time to reach deal on country's 60-year-old conflict that left thousands dead.

    Colombian government and the FARC rebel group have been holding talks for the last six months, but government negotiators say little progress has been made.

    The FARC rebels have rejected the idea of legal prosecution for their actions in the country's 60-year war, in which thousands of people have been killed and millions displaced.

    The rebels say the peace talks will take time, and the government's push for a quick deal is aimed at upcoming elections.
