Warrant Issued for Arrest of Sudan's President

Hosted by

The President of Sudan has been indicted for war crimes and crimes against humanity by the International Criminal Court. It's the first such action ever against a sitting head of state. Omar al-Bashir is not accused of genocide. The ICC says there's not enough evidence. He is charged with ordering murder, extermination, rape, torture and the forcible transfer of civilians suspected of supporting rebel factions in the western province of Darfur. Scott Baldouf covers Africa for the Christian Science Monitor.
