A state in Sudan’s Darfur region has expelled the French aid Group Medecins du Monde, or Doctors of the World.
South Darfur Governor Abdel Hamid Kasha on Monday accused the humanitarian group of working with rebels loyal to Abdelwahid Nur, who lives in Paris. The rebel group is one of several in Darfur fighting the Sudanese government.
Paris-based Medecins du Monde says it is dedicated to the most vulnerable victims of armed conflicts. Officials with the non-profit group did not immediately respond to the governor’s accusations.
