In Brief: Belgian NGO to wind up operation

The

Belgian branch of Medicins sans Frontieres will close up its operations

in Cambodia at the end of July, according to Country Director Philippe

Berneau, who said the decision was made by the group's head office in

Brussels for operational - not financial - reasons. "Today, Cambodia is

a stable country for us and we feel there are more urgent needs in

other countries," he said. He added that the French branch of Medecins

sans Frontieres would continue its operations in the Kingdom.
