Aid workers kidnapped

| 12/03/2009

(BBC): Three foreign staff of Medecins sans Frontieres’ Belgian branch have been kidnapped in Sudan’s Darfur region. MSF said the three were abducted, along with two local staff who were later released, on Wednesday in North Darfur. The kidnappings come after Sudan ordered the expulsion of 13 aid groups, including the French and Dutch chapters of MSF, earlier this month. They were told to leave after President Omar al-Bashir was indicted by the International Criminal Court (ICC). He is accused of war crimes and crimes against humanity in Darfur.
