Cafod aid in Sudan plight.

A PLANE carrying emergency food and equipment took off for Sudan yesterday where thousands remain in the grip of a humanitarian crisis.

Six tonnes of food, tents and plastic sheeting were on the flight from Oslo bound for Nyala in southern Darfur.

An estimated 1.2 million people in the region have been made homeless by fighting and a wider campaign of looting, killing and rape by militia gangs.

The aid plane was jointly organised and funded by the UK-based Catholic Agency for Overseas Development (Cafod) and Norwegian Church Aid.
