Darfur update

The UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) in Sudan is holding talks with government officials over the expulsion of its South Darfur head of office, an official said on 8 November.

According to, the governor of South Darfur, Ali Mahmoud Mohammed, ordered Wael Al-Haj Ibrahim to leave the state for alleged violation of the Humanitarian Act of 1995. Never mind that O.C.H.A. has coordinated humanitarian activities aimed at helping millions affected by the Darfur conflict. The Sudanese government has been harassing and kicking out UN officials and non-governmental organizations in Darfur, considering their efforts "political activities." Never mind that they're helping the people affected by the violence the Sudanese government helped cause.
