Uganda, Congo and Khartoum facing war crimes probe

BBC report today confirms the International Criminal Court at The Hague is to launch an inquiry into alleged war crimes in Darfur:

The New York-based Human Rights Watch group said the Sudanese authorities in Khartoum have not taken any meaningful steps to bring to account those responsible for the alleged crimes, the BBC's Geraldine Coughlan at The Hague reports.

The ICC plans other trials later this year against alleged perpetrators of war crimes in two other African nations, Uganda and Congo, a BBC correspondent says.

[Note, the report says two million people have fled Darfur - population is estimated at around 6 - 6.5 million]
