ACCRA, Ghana (AP) -- Sudan's president has warned that attempts to prosecute him on charges of waging a genocidal campaign in Darfur are undermining the peace process aimed at stopping the violence.
The Hague, Netherlands-based International Criminal Court indicted President Omar al-Bashir in July, and the court's chief prosecutor is seeking an arrest warrant.
Al-Bashir said Thursday that since the indictment, rebels have distanced themselves from negotiations. He said "it will have a catastrophic impact on the stability of the entire region."
