UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said Sudan's expulsion of 13 aid organizations will cause "irrevocable damage" to humanitarian operations in Darfur and urged the government to reconsider its decision. Ban said the operations of the agencies "are key to maintaining a lifeline to 4.7 million Sudanese people who receive aid in Darfur," UN spokeswoman Michele Montas told reporters Thursday. The International Criminal Court decided this week to issue an arrest warrant for Sudan's President Omar al-Bashir for war crimes and crimes against humanity. Afterward, UN officials said Sudan ordered the expulsion of more than a dozen non-governmental organizations operating in Darfur.
