Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos has won a second term in an election seen as a referendum on peace talks with Marxist guerrillas.

Santos pushed for support to continue the dialogue with rebel leaders of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia ( FARC) to end half-a century of war.

His rival Oscar Ivan Zuluaga had campaigned on a taking a tougher stance.

Santos opened talks in late 2012 aiming to end the conflict that has killed over 200,000 people and forced millions more from their homes.
