Sudan's Bashir in Egypt on second trip since warrant
CAIRO, March 25 (Reuters) - Sudanese President Omar Hassan al-Bashir arrived in Cairo on Wednesday on his second trip abroad since the International Criminal Court (ICC) indicted him on charges of war crimes in Darfur, airport sources said.
Bashir, who risks arrest when he leaves Sudan because of the warrant issued for him by the Hague-based court this month, is expected to discuss developments surrounding the ICC ruling with Egypt's president, Hosni Mubarak.
Bashir is unlikely to face arrest in Egypt, which has close ties with its Sudanese neighbour and has called on the U.N. Security Council to suspend the ICC warrant. (Writing by Will Rasmussen)
