SLIDESHOW: Life inside Darfur displacement camp

Sudan has closed 13 foreign and three local aid groups saying they helped Sudan's President Omar Hassan al-Bashir over charges of crimes against humanity and war crimes in Darfur.

Before the expulsions, the United Nations and aid groups were running the world's largest humanitarian operation in Darfur where, international experts say, almost six years of conflict have killed 200,000 people and displaced more than 2.7 million people from their homes.

U.N. agencies in Sudan have said it would be impossible to fill the gap left by the expelled organisations which made up around 40 percent of the humanitarian work force in Darfur.
