After having operations temporarily suspended by the Sudanese government for two months, the Norwegian Refugee Council announced it would be closing down its Darfur programs. The NRC said this was the fifth suspension without justification since 2004, and that working conditions were becoming impossible. (More info in a Reuters article here.) Considering the security situation in Darfur, it will be interesting to see if the NRC's decision starts a domino effect with other NGOs in the region.
