Colombian government and rebel negotiators on Thursday formally launched peace talks aimed at ending the South American nation's complex, nearly half-century-old conflict. Seven hours of talks, held at a secret venue outside Oslo, focused chiefly on logistics, but included a decision to start the next phase of negotiations on Nov. 15 in the Cuban capital of Havana.
