Warrant issued for Sudan’s Bashir

breaking news

The International Criminal Court has issued an arrest warrant for Sudan’s president on charges of war crimes and crimes against humanity in Darfur.

Omar al-Bashir, who denies the charges, has previously said that an arrest warrant would have “no value”.

Reports say Sudan’s capital, Khartoum, was tense as people awaited the decision, with fears of unrest.

The UN estimates some 300,000 people have died and millions been displaced in six years of conflict in the region.
