KHARTOUM, Sudan (AP) - Sudan's president tells supporters in
Darfur that no international court nor the U.N. Security Council
can touch even "an eyelash" on him in defiance of an
international warrant for his arrest.
Speaking to thousands at a rally Wednesday in the southern
Darfur town of Nyala, Omar al-Bashir denounced the West for
allegedly trying to split Darfur from the rest of the country and
for seeking to "create chaos in Sudan."
He spoke from a truck to chanting supporters dressed in
traditional white robes and turbans, occasionally waving his cane.
This is al-Bashir's second visit to Darfur since the
International Criminal Court issued a warrant for his arrest on
March 4 on charges of war crimes in Darfur.
