Britain will cut off aid funding from any organization that does not comply with a new review into charities' work overseas, Aid Minister Penny Mordaunt said Sunday, describing reports of sexual exploitation in the sector as "utterly despicable". Oxfam, one of Britain's biggest charities, Friday condemned the behavior of some former staff in Haiti after a newspaper report said aid workers had paid for sex while on a mission to help those affected by a 2010 earthquake.Mordaunt's department gave Oxfam 31.7 million pounds ($43.8 million) last year.Oxfam says it dismissed four people and allowed three others to resign after an internal 2011 investigation revealed that sexual misconduct, bullying, intimidation and a failure to protect staff hampered the charity's Haiti operation.
