Peace talks aimed at restoring order in the Central African Republic have begun in neighbouring Sudan.

The talks have brought together representatives of 14 armed groups and government negotiators in Sudan’s capital, Khartoum.

Armed groups now control most of the country and many of them have been accused of war crimes.

They’ve been asking for an amnesty, but the government is reluctant to grant it.

The talks are being brokered by the African Union, which is hoping to bring to an end a conflict that began in 2012 and has left two-thirds of the population reliant on international aid.
