Darfur refugee hails al-Bashir warrant

In New York, hundreds of refugees from Darfur welcomed the move by the International Criminal Court to issue an arrest warrant for Omar al-Bashir, the Sudanese president.

Al Jazeera met one such refugee who was among those who clashed with supporters of al-Bashir outside the Sudanese mission to the United Nations on Wednesday.

He has settled in Brooklyn's Kensington neighborhood, a haven for refugees who've fled Darfur. Here is his story in his own words.
