Colombia's President Santos gestures during a news conference in CartagenaBy Helen Murphy and Luis Jaime Acosta CARTAGENA, Colombia (Reuters) - Colombia's center-right government and the Marxist FARC rebel group signed a peace deal on Monday, ending a half-century war that killed a quarter of a million people and once took the Andean country to the brink of collapse. After four years of peace talks in Cuba, President Juan Manuel Santos, 65, and rebel leader Timochenko - the nom de guerre for 57-year-old Rodrigo Londono - warmly shook hands on Colombian soil for the first time and signed the accord with a pen made from a bullet casing. A crowd of dignitaries chanted "long live Colombia, long live peace" as Santos handed Timochenko a white dove pin.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said on Monday the United States is not yet ready to remove Colombia's FARC rebel group from its list of terrorist organizations, but will review the matter as a peace accord with Colombia's government is implemented. "We clearly are prepared to review and make judgments about that as the facts come in," Kerry told reporters during a visit to Cartagena, Colombia, for the signing of the peace agreement between the government and the rebel group to end 52 years of war.

By Helen Murphy and Luis Jaime Acosta CARTAGENA, Colombia (Reuters) - A rejection of Colombia's peace accord in a referendum next week would be a "leap into the abyss" as it could intensify the war and cost the country a decade to get Marxist FARC rebels back to the negotiating table, the government's chief peace negotiator told Reuters. The government and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) will on Monday sign the historic accord to end a war that has dragged on for 52 years and claimed the lives of 220,000 people. The final obstacle is a single-question vote on Oct. 2 dividing Colombians between those who believe in forgiving the FARC for the national good and those who prefer to see the rebels defeated on the battlefield and jailed.
