Pakistan on Wednesday told medical charity Medecins Sans Frontieres' (MSF) to stop work and leave its impoverished tribal areas that border Afghanistan, the health organisation said, ending its 14 year stay in the volatile region.MSF works out of two health facilities in the Kurram district of Pakistan's Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) region, which has been plagued by militancy over the past decade and was the location of many U.S. drone strikes targeting commanders from al Qaeda and other militant groups.Local officials say MSF provides essential healthcare facilities in FATA, an area with some of Pakistan's poorest healthcare and lowest literacy rates.Foreign nationals and organizations working in Pakistan require NOCs to operate in certain areas.
