In Brief: Sudan icc warrant 'damages peace'

Prime Minister Hun Sen predicted that the International Criminal Court's (ICC) arrest warrant for Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir would not bring peace to Sudan. "The warrant issued by The Hague just destroys the efforts of Sudan [to have peace]. It will have no result," he said on Thursday. "Just wait and see." Hun Sen said the ICC could not arrest Bashir, who is still in power: "They have their armed forces and they won't allow his arrest." Bashir was indicted March 4 by the ICC on seven charges of war crimes and crimes against humanity, and is the first sitting head of state to be indicted. In response, he expelled more than a dozen NGOs that were providing humanitarian aid to millions of refugees in Darfur.
