Colombia's last recognised leftist guerrilla group, the ELN, has announced a month-long ceasefire in response to the coronavirus pandemic, a statement released Monday said.
The rebels said they would unilaterally suspend military action from April 1 to the end of the month "as a humanitarian gesture."

The statement was disseminated by a group of Colombian senators who are seeking a peace process with the group.
