South African Court Orders Indicted Sudanese Leader Mot To Leave

A South African court issued an interim order on Sunday preventing Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir leaving the country, where he was attending an African Union summit, until the judge hears an application calling for his arrest.
Bashir is accused in an International Criminal Court arrest warrant of war crimes and crimes against humanity over atrocities in the Darfur conflict.
Judge Hans Fabricuis said if Bashir was allowed to leave the country it would damage South Africa's reputation, according to local media.
