The United Nations humanitarian chief hurriedly left a Darfur camp for displaced people on Monday when a crowd demonstrating for UN peacekeepers attacked a translator, accusing him of supporting the government, a UN spokesperson said. Jan Egeland and his entourage cut short their visit to Kalma camp when an NGO translator was manhandled.
