Sudan's president won another term in office Monday with a comfortable majority in elections marred by boycotts and fraud allegations, becoming the first head-of-state to be re-elected while facing an international arrest warrant for war crimes.

The victory by Omar al-Bashir was widely expected after his most credible challengers pulled out from the race complaining of fraud.

But it was likely to raise questions over his international standing and among his opponents, and was unlikely to alter Sudan's isolation. Al-Bashir can't travel freely because he risks being arrested to face charges before the Hague-based International Criminal Court for war crimes committed in Sudan's western Darfur region.
