AFP RELATED CONTENT A Kenyan judge has issued a warrant for Sudan's President Omar al-Bashir Chief prosecutor Luis Moreno-Ocampo accuses Bashir of having personally instructed his forces to annihilate the Fur, Masalit and Zaghawa ethnic groups in Darfur. About 300,000 people have died since conflict broke out in the region in 2003, when ethnic minority rebels took up arms against the Arab-dominated regime for a greater share of resources and power, according to UN figures. Sudan's government says 10,000 have been killed. Bashir had planned a second trip to Kenya, this time to attend a regional development summit that had been scheduled to be held in Nairobi in October last year. The ICC, then reminded Kenya of its obligation to arrest the Sudanese leader, and requested the government to inform it "about any problem which would impede or prevent the arrest and surrender of Omar al-Bashir in the event that he visits the country." This resulted in the summit being moved to the capital of Ethiopia, which is not a Rome Statute signatory. The African Union has on several occasions called on its members states not to arrest the Sudanese president, accusing the ICC of targeting only Africans and arguing that Bashir's arrest would hurt the peace process between Sudan and South Sudan. Bashir took part in a regional summit in Malawi in mid-October after attending an investiture ceremony for Djbibouti President Ismaël Omar Guelleh in May.
