South Africa court bid to arrest Sudan's Omar al-Bashir

A South African court has issued an interim order stopping Sudanese leader Omar al-Bashir, who faces war crimes charges, leaving the country.

The International Criminal Court has called on South Africa to arrest the Sudanese president Omar al-Bashir who is in Johannesburg attending an African Union (AU) summit.

The ICC said two arrest warrants were still outstanding against President Bashir. He is wanted in connection with atrocities allegedly committed in Darfur.
