From the AP:

Int’l Court: no arrest warrant yet for al-Bashir

THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) — The International Criminal Court says judges have not yet decided whether to issue an arrest warrant for Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir in connection with atrocities in his country’s Darfur region.

The court’s prosecutor, Luis Moreno-Ocampo, asked a three-judge panel in July to order al-Bashir’s arrest on charges of genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes.

The New York Times, citing unnamed lawyers and diplomats, reported late Wednesday that judges have decided to issue a warrant.

In response, the court issued a statement Thursday that “no decision has yet been taken by the judges.”
