A source in the FARC delegation told AFP the talks would continue for about two days, instead of the 11 days that past rounds have typically lasted. It would be their first session since Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos placed second to a fierce opponent of the peace talks, Oscar Ivan Zuluaga, in the first round presidential vote May 25. Meanwhile in Bogota, the army reported that six FARC guerrillas were killed and seven others captured various operations in southwestern Colombia.
