South Africa court bars indicted Sudan leader from leaving

Reuters: "President Omar al-Bashir, visiting South Africa for an African Union summit, stands accused in an ICC arrest warrant of war crimes and crimes against humanity over atrocities committed in the Darfur conflict. He was first indicted in 2009.

A judge is expected to hear an application on Monday calling for Bashir's arrest, although this appears unlikely because South Africa's government has granted legal immunity to all African Union delegates."
