    Representatives of the Syrian government and opposition groups are meeting in the capital of Kazakhstan for a sixth round of talks to end the civil war.

    The talks in Astana are brokered by Russia, Turkey and Iran.

    However, many victims of the war are critical of the representatives at the talks, saying they are too far removed from the situation on the ground.
