Syria's warring sides are due to meet Saturday in Geneva in a last-ditch effort to save deadlocked peace talks amid fears that they could collapse altogether.As the parties in Geneva failed to agree even on an agenda for their talks, the death toll mounted in Syria, where more than 136,000 people have been killed in three years.A monitoring group said Thursday that more than 5,000 people had been killed since a first round of talks began on January 22 . It was unclear if Brahimi could convince the warring sides to come back for a third round of talks.In an effort to inject life into the talks, both the United States and Russia sent top envoys to Geneva this week to meet Brahimi and the two sides.Syria's deputy foreign minister Muqdad had sharp words for Amos, accusing her of an "unacceptable" failure to recognise there was "terrorism" in Syria and that it hindered aid operations.
