(ABC News)  Six international aid workers in Darfur have been expelled; the violations are undisclosed as of yet.  Local Darfur officials informed the aid workers that they would be deported individually because their security could not be guaranteed.  Eleven international aid organizations have been expelled since March 2009 due to an indictment charge against the Sudanese president for crimes against humanity in Darfur.  “It’s not about the individuals or the organizations,” Samuel Hendricks, spokesman for the U.N. Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs in Sudan, said.  “The point is these people are working in a humanitarian capacity and trying to help the population of Darfur.”
