HAVANA - Colombia's government and Marxist FARC rebels on Saturday announced a new peace deal to end 52 years of civil war, after voters rejected a prior peace accord in a referendum.

"We have reached a new final agreement to end the armed conflict, which incorporates changes, clarifications and some new contributions from various social groups, which we have gone through one by one," said a joint statement read out by diplomats from Cuba and Norway, the peace process guarantors.
