International Criminal Court
The International Criminal Court is investigating allegations of war crimes in Afghanistan.
The transitional authorities in Sudan say that they are ready to hand over former President Omar al-Bashir to the International Criminal Court in the Hague. He was ousted last year by a popular uprising after ruling with an iron fist for 30 years. Mr al-Bashir is currently in jail on corruption charges but he is wanted, with four other suspects, by the ICC for war crimes and crimes against humanity in relation to mass killings in the western province of Darfur. For more than 10 years he defied arrest warrants issued by the ICC. BBC Newsday's Lawrence Pollard spoke to Hajooj Kuka, a civil society activist and film-maker, who took part in the pro-democracy protests last year.

The International Court of Justice in the Hague is to hear a case brought by The Gambia accusing Myanmar of genocide. The West African state is seeking emergency measures to stop Myanmar's continuing persecution of a Muslim minority, the Rohingya. Hundreds of thousands fled Myanmar in 2017 when the Burmese army launched a bloody campaign against them. Myanmar's de-facto leader, Aung San Suu Kyi, is in the Netherlands to lead the defence of her country. International lawyer Philippe Sands,who is one of the legal council for the Gambia, spoke to BBC Newsday. (Picture: Rohingya survivors stand outside the International Court of Justice.
