KHARTOUM (Dispatches) -- Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir, who is wanted by the International Criminal Court, will not join a summit in Saudi Arabia with U.S. President Donald Trump, his office said Friday.
"President Omar al-Bashir has apologized to King Salman of Saudi Arabia for being unable to attend the Riyadh summit," a statement from his office carried by the official SUNA news agency said. Bashir has evaded arrest since his indictment by the ICC for alleged genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity related to the 14-year-old conflict in Darfur that has killed tens of thousands of people.
