AU will send delegation to UN to try halt ICC's warrant against Sudan's Bashir

AU to seek UN's intervention to halt Beshir warrant
The African Union said Thursday it will send a delegation to the UN to try to halt the International Criminal Court's arrest warrant against Sudanese President Omar al-Beshir.

The move would "give a chance for peace in Sudan," said the chairman of the bloc's Peace and Security Council, Bruno Zidouemba, after an emergency meeting in the Ethiopian capital.

He said the council "decided to pursue ways with the international community, and especially the UN Security Council, to halt the proceedings to give a chance for peace in Sudan."
My guess and hope is that they will eventually succeed: think of the children of Sudan and give peace a chance. The late great Mahatma Gandhi would agree, I'm sure. Life is short enough under the best of circumstances. Recently I read a news story about Libyan leader Col. Gaddafi's plans to develop his country like a co-operative and give equal shares in oil revenues to all Libyans. Hopefully he will inspire Mr Bashir to do innovative things for Sudan, especially when it comes to land. Why can't each Sudanese citizen be given a plot of land to own and farm?
