HAVANA - Colombia's leftist FARC rebels said on Thursday they will seek a ceasefire at the start of peace talks with the government aimed at ending half a century of war.

"We're going to propose a ceasefire immediately when we sit at the table," said Mauricio Jaramillo, a senior rebel commander at a press conference in Havana.

The rebels said the talks, the first since a failed attempt at peace a decade ago, were set to begin on Oct. 8 in Norway. Afterwards, they will move to Cuba, officials have said.
