Sudan's Bashir slams ICC warrant for defense minister

KHARTOUM - Sudanese President Omar Hassan al-Bashir condemned an International Criminal Court arrest warrant issued for his defense minister, who stood by his side during a speech on Saturday.
The International Criminal Court issued an arrest warrant on Thursday for Sudanese Defense Minister Abdel Raheem Muhammad Hussein as part of an investigation into atrocities in Darfur.
Hussein is the latest of several senior officials in Sudan to be indicted by the court in The Hague, which is also seeking the arrest of Bashir on charges of orchestrating genocide.
All indictees remain at large.
