Nigeria lifts suspension of two aid groups in northeast -minister

MAIDUGURI, Nigeria, Oct 31 (Reuters) – Nigeria has “temporarily” lifted a suspension of operations against aid groups Mercy Corps and Action Against Hunger in the country’s northeast, the minister of humanitarian affairs said.

The army forced both groups to close some of their offices in September, accusing Action Against Hunger of aiding terrorist groups and alleging that a large amount of cash in a car found in northeastern Borno state belonged to Mercy Corps.
