Arab League Rejects Bashir Charges

Ad Feedback

The Arab League is rejecting war crimes charges against Sudan's president.

The league went so far as to invite Omar al-Bashir to its summit in Qatar.

The International Criminal Court issued an arrest warrant for Bashir earlier this month.

Bashir's government is thought to be responsible for war crimes and genocide in Darfur.

At the summit, Bashir snubbed the court's warrant and thanked the Muslim Arab nations for supporting him.

"Your strong stance with Sudan and your support of the humanitarian situation in Darfur are very much appreciated," he told members of the league.

Bashir kicked out several aid organizations from Darfur. During the summit, he has shown no signs of allowing these groups back in the country.
