Sudan President’s Request Sparks Outrage

The president of Sudan wants to join his fellow head of states at this year’s United Nations General Assembly but human rights groups and the International Criminal Court condemned his wish. Charged with genocide and additional crimes in the Darfur conflict where more than 200,000 were killed, Omar Hassan al-Bashir would be the first visitor to the U.N. with a standing warrant for his arrest by the ICC.
