Sudan’s longtime leader Omar al-Bashir will be handed over to the International Criminal Court in The Hague to face charges of genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity. He is accused of leading the Sudanese government’s scorched-earth campaign in Darfur, where up to 300,000 people were killed and more than 2.5 million people were forced from their homes. Bashir was forced from power last April amid massive anti-government protests in Sudan.
