Already facing several charges from the International Criminal Court including charges of war crimes and crimes against humanity, Sudan’s president Omar al-Bashir is now facing charged with three counts of Genocide. He is accused over the conflict in Sudan’s western region of Darfur, where some 300,000 people are said to have died in seven years of fighting. The ICC also states has kept 2.5 million refugees in Darfur in camps “under genocide conditions, like a gigantic Auschwitz.”

According to the BBC, the ICC first indicted him in March 2009 but he has not been arrested.
