Today’s New York Times reports that the International Criminal Court has decided to issue an arrest warrant against President el Bashir of Sudan: http://www.nytimes.com/2009/02/12/world/africa/12hague.html?ref=world
But the Court issued a denial, saying no decision had been taken. So did the United Nations, http://www.icc-cpi.int/NR/exeres/A3275BE5-2D68-4962-9C11-90FAA646BF20.htm.
The New York Times article is by Marlise Simons, who is very well informed and reliable, and I don’t think she made up the story. She does not refer to the sources, nor does she suggest this was officially announced by the Court, which it wasn’t. But that doesn’t mean she is wrong. Obviously she has been told that a decision has been taken by reliable sources, and I don't see any reason to doubt this. She says that the Court has already informed the United Nations Secretary-General.
The warrant itself will almost certainly be issued within the next week or two. The only real issue in any doubt is whether it will include charges of genocide, as requested by the Prosecutor.
