Talks are being held between Sudan's transitional government and armed groups. They include fighters accused of genocide in the Darfur region.
Some who fled the fighting are sceptical about what the talks can achieve.
The UN says during 16 years of conflict in the region more than 300,000 people have been killed and three million displaced.
