Earlier this month, Sudan expelled the French agency Medecins du Monde, accusing it of spying and helping rebels. The group was one of the few working in the rebel stronghold of Jabel Marra which Sudan's army attacked on Thursday.
The government has barred access by aid agencies to Jabel Marra for much of the past year. Dozens of aid and U.N. workers must wait for months for visas and other papers and Sudan regularly expels individual foreign staff.
Aid operations in the region have been hampered by insecurity and kidnappings of foreign workers. Khartoum has yet to prosecute any kidnappers.
