BBC News with  Neil Nunes.
Colombia's President, Juan Manuel Santas, has insisted that a ceasefire between the government and FARC rebels will remain in place, in spite of the rejection by voters of a historic peace deal. Mr. Santas said he wouldn't resign, and would carry on working for peace. The agreement signed last week in a high-profile ceremony was rejected in a referendum by a raise of thin margin. The FARC leader, known as Temechenko, said he regretted the result, but insisted there would be no return to violence. The former president, Alvalo olibei, who headed the NO campaign, said all Colombians wanted peace, but that the deal needed, what he called, corrections. Mr.Olibei's campaign had argued that the government was not being tough enough with the FARC.
