Sudan's Bashir to attend Arab summit despite warrant

KHARTOUM, March 4 (Reuters) - Sudanese President Omar Hassan al-Bashir plans to attend an Arab summit set for this month in Qatar despite an arrest warrant against him by the International Criminal Court (ICC), the foreign ministry said on Wednesday.

"We have received the invitation and accepted it," Mutrif Siddiq, under-secretary of foreign affairs, told Reuters.

"He (Bashir) will attend all Arab summits and all African summits," he said. (Reporting By Aziz El-Kaissouni, writing by Alaa Shahine)
