Sudan and the International Criminal Court

    Last week, the International Criminal Court put out a warrant for the arrest of Sudanese President Omar Hassan al-Bashir on charges of genocide. Eight days before that, nine peacekeeping troupes were ambushed and killed in Sudan. We get an update on the humanitarian crisis, prospects for peace negotiations, and the response of the international community. Our guests are SHASHANK BENGALI, Washington Bureau’s Africa correspondent for McClatchy Newspapers and WILLIAM BURKE WHITE, Assistant Professor of Law at the University of Pennsylvania Law School. He studies international courts and tribunals, post-conflict justice systems, and human rights.
