Sudan: 2 people die from Meningitis in Darfur camp

A doctor and a camp resident say at least two people died from a Meningitis outbreak in a southern Darfur refugee camp.
The deaths in Kalma camp come after Sudan expelled 13 aid groups in response to an international court's indictment of Sudan's president for war crimes in Darfur.
The camp resident says camp medics reported the two deaths Tuesday. The doctor, who works in a nearby town, says colleagues in the camp told him at least two died. Both spoke on condition of anonymity Wednesday for fear of government retribution.
Doctors Without Borders was to start vaccinations for 130,000 people in the area before being expelled March 5. The group said March 6 that four had died from Meningitis and 28 others had been infected in the camp.
