Sudan has agreed to hand ousted president Omar al- Bashir to the International Criminal Court to face genocide and war crimes charges. The country' s transitional authorities and rebel groups agreed the handover of the former leader today, who also allegedly ordered mass killings in the Darfur region.

  2021 Gonzaga Bulldogs among seven best men's basketball teams without NCAA Tournament title The best team in men's college basketball doesn't always win the national title. Here are the seven greatest teams in recent history to fall short.And while the upsets and great performances for three weeks create memories for fans and players, the event isn't necessarily the best way to determine a national champion.

Sudan ' s announcement that it plans to hand ousted long-serving President Omar al- Bashir over to the International Criminal Court (ICC) was dramatic and surprising, but it also takes the country into uncharted waters, writes Sudan expert Alex de Waal. The decision to get the ICC involved was welcomed by the majority of Sudanese who long for justice. But the process will be fraught with difficulties and the extent and timing of bringing past leaders to account is a matter of delicate political judgement .

Sudan ' s ousted President Omar al- Bashir ' s career has been defined by war. He came to power in a military coup in 1989 and ruled what was until 2011 Africa' s largest country with an iron fist. When he seized power, Sudan was in the midst of a 21-year civil war between north and south. Although his government signed a deal to end that conflict in 2005, another one was breaking out at the same time - in the western region of Darfur, where Mr Bashir is accused of organising war crimes and crimes against humanity by the International Criminal Court (ICC). Despite an international arrest warrant

in December 2018, at the beginnings of the Revolution, Said Ahmad, medical student, was arrested and incarcerated for 3 days . "Today, we have more freedom, not like before," he notes. Two years ago, if we had gathered like that, men would come from pick-up and shot us or shot. Today, we are in transition, elections arrive. The country is moving forward, there are improvements.

Any impunity present for some

but for Badreddin Omar, impunity still reigns in particular in the case of the bloody dispersion of sit-in in Khartoum on June 3, 2019. "It's the biggest crime, and C happened when Bashir had already fallen. This is the problem, those responsible for this massacre are in power. They will not be judged. The martyrs of Qyiadah remained unpunished. We remain mobilized and we are waiting to see what the conclusions of the investigation committee will be on June 3rd. Without that, we can not speak of real justice in Sudan.

Two years ago Badreddin was those who have been mounted on a train from Atbara to the capital to support the revolution. They demanded a 100% civilian government and today distinguished the preponderance of the military personnel.
