Sudanese government expells charity worker, warns aid organizations in Darfur

.- The Sudan director of the UK based aid agency Save the Children was expelled from the east African country yesterday, accused by the Sudanese government of breaking the country’s law and of interfering in its domestic affairs.

Save the Children were providing relief to the hundreds of thousands of refugees in the war-torn western Sudanese region of Darfur.

Save the Children confirmed yesterday that it had received two letters from the Sudanese Ministry for Humanitarian Affairs expelling Kate Halff, the director of the agency, and issuing an offical warning to the agency.

Oxfam, another UK based charity has also received a letter of warning from the government ministry.
