An arrest warrant may be out for him, but it hasn't stopped Sudanese president Omar Hassan al-Bashir from traveling to Saudi Arabia. He is in the country to perform a short pilgrimage. This is Bashir's fifth visit to a foreign state since the International Criminal Court in The Hague issued a warrant for his arrest. He is accused of crimes against humanity and war crimes in Darfur. Bashir risks arrest if he leaves his own country. So far he has only been visiting states that are not members of the ICC. Egypt, where he went a week ago, has called on the U.N. Security Council to suspend the warrant. Saudi Arabia's foreign minister, Saud al-Faisal, said the warrant would not lead to the stability of Sudan or resolve the conflict in Darfur. Experts estimate at least 200,000 people have been killed and more than 2.7 million have been displaced by conflict in the region.
