Bashir defies ICC in Chad visit

Sudan's president arrives in member state of global court despite arrest warrants for war crimes.

    Sudan's president has arrived in Chad on his first trip to a full member state of the International Criminal Court, which is demanding his arrest for war crimes and genocide.

    Omar al-Bashir arrived in the capital N'Djamena on Wednesday to a warm welcome, with Chad saying it is under no obligation to arrest him.

    He will be attending a summit of the Sahel-Saharan states in the country, despite Chad being a signatory of the Rome Statute that binds members to honour arrest warrants issued by the global court.
