Sudan suspends UN relief work in Darfur
"The suspension applies for all of Darfur and this will continue until we get an explanation," said Foreign Ministry spokesman Jamal Ibrahim.

Ibrahim said that a U.N. helicopter had transported rebel leader Suleiman Adam Jamous who opposes the current peace agreement. He called the action a "flagrant violation" of the sovereignty of Sudan.
Two U.N. groups, the World Food Program and UNICEF head up one of the largest relief operations in the troubled Darfur region.
