Sudan expels Norwegian refugee body from Darfur

Sudanese officials said they had ordered the Norwegian Refugee Council to leave South Darfur state, accusing the aid agency of espionage and publishing false information.

"We have decided not to renew the technical agreement with Norwegian Refugee Council in South Darfur state," said Mohammad Salih, the head of international relations department of South Darfur.

"They have made reports on military movements of armed forces ... which is in the domain of espionage," he said.
