Colombian suggests rebels declare Christmas truce

Colombian chief negotiator in the peace talks with the ELN guerrillas, Juan Camilo Restrepo aclls for a Christmas and New Year's truceColombia’s government suggested Sunday to a leftist rebel group that it declare a Christmas and New Year’s truce as a way to free up stalled peace talks. The National Liberation Army (ELN), smaller than the FARC guerrilla group with whom the government already signed a peace accord, wants until January 10 to consider their next move, government chief negotiator Juan Camilo Restrepo said. The two sides were to have started formal peace talks in late October, but they broke down last month before they could start after the rebels failed to release a hostage, a former congressman named Odin Sanchez.
