War crimes: Alleged militia leader at ICC’s first Darfur trial

The first ICC trial addressed the murder and torture of hundreds of thousands of people in Sudan’s Darfur region.

A Sudanese militia leader is on trial at the International Criminal Court for atrocities committed nearly 20 years ago in Sudan’s Darfur region.  Ali Abd-al-Rahman – also known as Ali Kushayb – is suspected to be linked to the Janjaweed armed group.  He’s been charged with 31 counts of war crimes and crimes against humanity.
