Do You Remember This Story?

"In April, Zoe's Ark announced a campaign to evacuate 10,000 orphans from Darfur alongside other French charities including Sauver le Darfour (Save Darfur).
It said it wanted to place orphaned Darfuri children aged under five in foster care with French families, invoking its right to do so under international law.

Zoe's Ark founder Eric Breteau (left) is one of those held in Chad. But the charity has been accused of child trafficking in the case of the 103 children it attempted to fly out of Chad.

UN officials say many of the children are from Chad, not Sudan, and there is no evidence that they are orphans.

Zoe's Ark insists tribal leaders in Sudan told them all the children were Darfuri orphans. It says it wanted to save the children's lives and was carrying out a medical evacuation - not an adoption operation.
