THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) — The International Criminal Court is urging Chad and Libya to arrest Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir and extradite him to face trial if he visits over the weekend.
The written order issued Friday is the court's latest attempt to have al-Bashir detained since he was indicted for crimes including genocide in Sudan's Darfur region.
The court's prosecutor asked for the order following reports that al-Bashir could travel to Chad and Libya for meetings.
Chad is one of several nations al-Bashir has visited without being arrested since he was indicted.
The Hague-based court issued arrest warrants for al-Bashir in 2009 and 2010, but has no police force of its own to detain suspects.
