Sudan:Sudan on Friday slammed a U.N. resolution sending Darfur war crime suspects to the International Criminal Court (ICC) and said it would refuse to hand its citizens over to face justice abroad.
In contrast, the two 2_kommentar Darfur rebel groups welcomed the resolution and said they would both comply by sending to the court any members of their groups accused of crimes.
The U.N. Security Council voted 11-0 with four abstentions late on Thursday to refer a sealed list of 51 people accused of crimes against humanity in Darfur to the ICC, after last-minute wrangling to allow exemptions for U.S. citizens.
It was the first case sent by the council to the Hague-based ICC, set up to try cases of genocide and other major human rights violations.(reuters)
