    Columbia celebrates a historic peace agreement aimed at ending the decades’ long FARC rebel insurgency and Donald Trump shares a stage with the outgoing leader of the UK Independence Party, Nigel Farage.

    Today’s main stories: President of Columbia Juan Manuel Santos and the leader of the FARC Revolutionary Armed Forces of Columbia announced yesterday, a historic peace deal following talks in Havana, marking a huge step forward in concluding a decades long insurgency within Columbia. We talk to Oscar Palma, Professor of Political Science and Government at the National University of Columbia.

    Yesterday evening, a 15,000 strong crowd of activists gathered in Jackson, Mississippi to hear Donald Trump speak. But this rally had a special guest — the Republican Party presidential candidate was joined on stage by the UK Independence Party's Nigel Farage.
