The leader of Colombia's largest rebel group, Farc has announced a halt to the rebels' military training.

The rebel leader, known as Timochenko, tweeted on Wednesday that he had ordered military courses be suspended.

He told Farc's "military structure" to dedicate itself to "political and cultural training" instead.

The order came a week after rebel negotiators and the Colombian government struck a key deal at talks on how to end the 51-year-conflict.
