    South Africa has been summoned to the International Criminal Court in The Hague to explain why it didn’t arrest Omar al-Bashir.

    The Sudanese President was in Johannesburg for an African Union summit in 2015.

    South Africa ignored an arrest warrant for Bashir, who is accused of war crimes.
