The government and opposition forces in Syria are due to return to Geneva on Monday in an attempt to agree on a peace deal to bring an end to three years of civil war.

Over 100,000 people have been killed in the conflict and millions have fled their homes.

The first round of peace talks, known as Geneva 1, ended without an agreement.

The Joint UN Arab League Envoy, Lahkdar Brahimi will act as mediator.

Daniel Dickinson asked Corinne Momal, the Director of Information at the UN in Geneva what was expected to happen at the talks.
