Sudanese Wary of Returning to Villages

Ten of thousands have been killed in the western region of Sudan, victims of ethnic cleansing and civil unrest. Millions of refugees have sought safety in other villages and in camps over the border in Chad. Talks to end the conflict are scheduled to begin Monday, days after the United Nations extracted a promise from the government to help refugees return home. Hear NPR's Jason Beaubien and NPR's Jennifer Ludden.
