Wanted Sudan's Bashir arrives in Chad
N'DJAMENA (Reuters) - Sudanese President Omar Hassan al-Bashir arrived in Chad Wednesday, the first time he has visited a full member of the global court demanding his arrest for war crimes and genocide.
A Reuters witness saw Bashir exit the plane and be welcomed by Chadian President Idriss Deby.
Sudanese officials have said they are confident Deby would not turn Bashir over to the International Criminal Court, which accuses him of rape, torture and murder in Sudan's remote Darfur region.
