The prosecutor of the world's first permanent war crimes tribunal will seek an arrest warrant Monday charging Sudan's president with crimes against humanity and genocide in Darfur, a move UN diplomats warned could bring a backlash from Sudan's government. UN officials and diplomats said the chief prosecutor of the International Criminal Court would seek an indictment charging Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir with orchestrating violence in Darfur that has left hundreds of thousands of people dead. Sudan's government reacted swiftly and angrily. "If you indict our head of state, the symbol of our country, the symbol of our dignity, then the sky's the limit for our reactions," Sudan's UN Ambassador Abdalmahmood Abdalhaleem Mohamed told The Associated Press on Friday. "We condemn it in the strongest of terms. It will have far-reaching, bad implications for the entire country."
