Restraints Still Too Tight for Aid Group

From Times Wire Reports

The governor of North Darfur state said his government had lifted restrictions on aid groups, but a U.N. World Food Program official said the action was too limited to enable his group to resume work.

In Khartoum, Barry Came said United Nations security restrictions on the state still applied, adding that the easing of government restrictions -- although welcome -- wasn’t sufficient.

More fighting between the government and rebels erupted last week and caused aid groups to suspend operations.
