Sudan 'dismayed' over Kenya al-Bashir court ruling

Sudan's embassy in Kenya says it is dismayed over a ruling from Kenya's high court that authorities must arrest Sudan President Omar al-Bashir if he visits Kenya again.

The embassy said Tuesday that the ruling seriously damaged relations between the two countries. Sudan said Kenya should abide by a ruling by African Union member countries not to cooperate with the International Criminal Court and arrest al-Bashir if he visits other African countries.

Al-Bashir visited Kenya last year but was not arrested. He is wanted by the ICC for genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity committed Darfur.

Sudan said it recalled its ambassador in Nairobi for consultations and ordered Kenya's ambassador in Khartoum to leave Sudan within three days.
