The United Nations humanitarian chief, John Holmes, has kicked off a five-day trip to Sudan to assess relief programmes in the south of the African country and its war-stricken Darfur region.

Holmes, under-secretary general for humanitarian affairs, is expected to review living conditions for the local populations in areas affected by the expulsions of international NGOs in the western Sudanese region of Darfur.

An estimated 300 000 people have been killed and another 2.7 million have been forced from their homes since 2003 in that region.
