Thousands flee Central African rebel advance

Many fear peace talks between the government of Central African Republic and rebels may not resolve conflict.

    Thousands of people have fled Central African Republic's capital because they are afraid peace talks being held this week will fail.

    Rebels will reportedly meet the government by Friday. After a month of fighting, the alliance of rebels control most of the country's north. And as Al Jazeera's Andrew Simmons reports from the capital Bangui, people there want the rebellion to stop.
