Darfur rejoices as Sudan to hand over Bashir to ICC

Nyala: In Sudan’s sprawling Camp Kalma, people who fled the Darfur conflict are overjoyed at a pledge by the country’s new authorities to finally deliver ex-president Omar al-Bashir to the International Criminal Court.
Bashir has for the past decade flouted ICC arrest warrants on charges of genocide and war crimes in the ravaged Darfur region of western Sudan.
Sudan’s transitional authorities agreed last Tuesday to transfer him to stand trial before the court based in The Hague.
“There was rejoicing across the camp after people heard Bashir is being handed over to the ICC,” 65-year-old Adam Ali, a longtime resident of Kalma camp in Nyala, capital of South Darfur state, told AFP. (AFP)
