Haiti has temporarily revoked Oxfam's authorization to operate in the Caribbean country after allegations of sexual misconduct by some of the British charity's staff there, Planning and External Cooperation Minister Aviol Fleurant said on Thursday.

Fleurant said the decision had been made on the grounds of "serious failings" by Oxfam between and 2010 and 2011, and that a definitive decision on the charity's right to operate in Haiti would be made in some two months time.
