Sudan leader faces Darfur charges

The prosecutor of the International Criminal Court was expected by diplomats to seek the arrest on Monday of the Sudanese president on charges of genocide in a five-year campaign of violence in the country's Darfur region.

But the ruling National Congress Party of Omar Hassan al-Bashir has warned of "more violence and blood" in the huge western region of Darfur if the president is charged, state TV reported.

Al-Bashir, who seized power in a 1989 coup, got a show of support Sunday as he arrived for an emergency meeting of his cabinet. source
