Legal proceedings at the International Criminal Court (ICC) are usually lengthy, slow and unwieldy, so it is unheard of to have three judgements handed down in one day. The court, based in The Hague, opened its doors in 2002 to try the world's worst crimes in places where governments cannot or will not act.

"It's not going to be great for morale," a White House official told The Journal about McEntee's firing.
