UN refugee chief to visit Darfur
The acting head of the UN refugee agency, Wendy Chamberlin, is expected to visit the Darfur region in western Sudan. The UNHCR said she would meet with UN staff and other aid organizations, and visit camps for displaced people in Darfur and in neighboring Chad.
Chamberlin's five-day visit comes as the International Committee of the Red Cross expressed concern over attacks on aid workers in Darfur. "These attacks against humanitarian convoys are hampering the humanitarian activities that are taking place in Darfur," said ICRC spokesman Marco Jimenez.
