Syria's warring sides will not sit in the same room for the start of talks in Geneva Friday despite efforts by UN mediator Lakhdar Brahimi to bring them together, sources said.

"The meeting will take place in two separate rooms and Brahimi will speak to each side separately," a Syrian regime source in Geneva told AFP, while a Western diplomatic source said: "Brahimi will speak first to the regime, then to the opposition."
