South Sudan accused of threatening aid groups

People receive food aid and other vital supplies on January 8, 2014 from the International Committee of the Red Cross, in Minkaman, South SudanInternational charities working to stem chronic disease and hunger in war-torn South Sudan are facing increased harassment, surveillance and threats of expulsion from the government, according to a charity Friday. A letter to over 100 international aid agencies from South Sudan’s NGO Forum detailed the “increasing trend of harassment and interference targeting NGOs” that is “marked by increased hostility and threats from officials”. Incidents include the detention and expulsion this month of one foreign worker as “escalating rhetoric and the overall hostile tone toward [the] international community” rises, the letter said. Last month South Sudan’s Ministry of Labour ordered all international aid workers out of the country before another ministry rescinded it.
