Syrian refugees indifferent to Geneva talks

Refugees in Lebanon's Bekaa valley say ongoing peace conference in Switzerland comes three years too late.

    Syrian refugees in Lebanon say that there is little hope of the Geneva conference changing their situation or improving their living conditions.

    They have low expectations because previous efforts to find a peaceful solution to the conflict that forced them from their homes have failed.

    Al Jazeera's Nisreen El-Shamayleh reports from the Bekaa valley, on Lebanon's border with Syria.
