Colombia's President Juan Manuel Santos on Friday warned that the country's patience with Marxist FARC rebels is wearing thin and that the peace process to end five decades of war must have a deadline.

Two days after the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia  broke a unilateral ceasefire, ambushing and killing 11 soldiers in rural Cauca province, Santos pledged to remain at the negotiating table with the rebels but called for a timeline.



"Do not be deaf to Colombians who are shouting for an end to the war, who are losing patience," Santos said in a televised address.



"We must put deadlines on this process and if (the FARC) want peace they must demonstrate with deeds and not with words."
