The government of Colombia and left-wing Farc rebels have agreed on land reform, after more than six months of peace talks.

"This agreement will be the start of a radical transformation of rural Colombia," read a joint statement.

The deal calls for the economic and social development of rural areas and providing land to poor farmers.

Land reform is one of the most contentious issues in the talks on ending five decades of conflict.
