Sudan Kicks out Major Aid Groups from Darfur
Two days after the International Criminal Court issued an arrest warrant for the Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir, Sudan shut down major aid groups working in Darfur.
The United Nations says Sudan ordered 13 major aid groups working in the country to shut down, revoking all their licenses. They also demanded the aid groups hand over laptops, personal computers, bank account numbers - and to get out of the country.
As a result, millions of people will go without the basic necessities of life.
The ICC issued the warrant on charges of war crimes in Darfur on Wednesday, and the Sudanese government was ready to act.
The United Nations says Khartoum has ordered 13 major aid groups working in Darfur to shut down, revoking all the groups' licenses.
