BOGOTA, Oct 3 (Reuters) - Colombia's Marxist FARC rebels said on Monday they would maintain their ceasefire put in place over a year ago and "remain faithful" to the peace accord signed last week with the government.

In a statement, the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) called on social and political movements to mobilize peacefully and back the peace agreement that was narrowly rejected on Sunday in a plebiscite. (Reporting by Helen Murphy; Editing by Andrew Cawthorne and Chris Reese)
