Sudan’s military has accused foreign aid agencies of violating its airspace, and has said it will “firmly deal” with them, the AFP news agency reports.

A cargo plane flying for “international and regional NGOs” breached Sudan’s airspace on 17 and 20 May, a military statement quoted by AFP says.

“Sudan’s army warns that any aircraft that violates Sudan’s airspace and enters it without permission or proper procedures will be dealt with firmly,” a spokesman, Brigadier Ahmed Khalifa al-Shami, added.

The military did not name the NGOs.

The UN force in Darfur region and the World Food Programme operate daily flights across Sudan.

Last week, the government expelled the head of the UN’s humanitarian aid agency (UNOCHA), a move criticised by the US’ chief envoy to the UN.
