The leader of Colombia’s FARC rebels has accused the government of ‘‘repeatedly breaking” the terms of their peace deal and has hinted he may delay the armed groups demobilisation.

Rodrigo Londono AKA Timochenko has called on an international monitoring group to oversee the process.

He tweeted:“Given the repeated failure of the Government to comply with the Peace Agreement, the FARC has called for international monitoring.”

The peace deal ended Latin America’s longest running civil war, which lasted five decades.

As many as 260,000 people have been killed in the conflict after FARC took up arms in a battle for rural land rights.

The peace accord was signed last November in the Cuban capital Havana after a tortuous four-year process.
