Incident: Expulsion, Sudan

Eastern Front rebels reported that the Sudanese government no longer would be permitting the International Rescue Committee to operate in the eastern part of the country. No reason was given for the expulsion, but the other international NGO in the area, Samaritan's Purse, remains in operation. (3/9/06 Update) IRC states it was not expelled but was temporarily suspending operations at the request of the UN.
