Sudanese president may face genocide charges

Breaking News

Sudan's president faces being charged with genocide over the seven-year conflict in Darfur after a war crimes court ruling.

An appeals chamber ordered that evidence which could support a genocide indictment must be looked at again after it was discarded during earlier hearings.

The International Criminal Court charged Mr Bashir with seven counts of crimes against humanity and war crimes in March last year.

But prosecutors' requests that three counts of genocide be added to that charge sheet were denied by the Court's judges.
