Colombia's Farc suspends election campaigning over 'threats' to candidates

The demobilised Colombian rebel group Farc says it is suspending political campaigning for upcoming elections following threats to its candidates.

Farc signed a peace deal with the government in 2016 and announced last year it was forming a political party.
However, protesters have disrupted its rallies, particularly those for leader Rodrigo Londoño, known as Timochenko, who is running for president.
On Friday the party demanded "security guarantees" for its candidates.
