    Colombia’s FARC rebel group says it has handed over 60 percent of its weapons to the United Nations as part of a deal to end the half-century war with government forces.

    The rest of the group’s weapons are due to be surrendered on June 20.

    Under a deal signed with the government last year, FARC cannot form a political party until it gives up all arms.

    Al Jazeera’s Alessandro Rampietti reports.
