The International Criminal Court (ICC) in The Hague is expected to issue an arrest warrant for President al-Bashir on March 4. The Sudanese president has been accused of orchestrating a campaign of violence against Darfur’s ethnic Fur, Masalit, and Zaghawa. Amnesty International says 300,000 people have been killed and nearly 3 million others displaced since the attacks began in 2003. If the warrant is granted and an arrest carried out, Bashir would become the first s 500
