The International Criminal Court is expected to issue an arrest warrant for President Omar al-Bashir of Sudan. You can read the full story here. The Save Darfur Coalition has posted a response here.

According to the Save Darfur Coaltion, this is the first time the ICC has indicted a head of state. This decision puts international legal backing behind the already well-known fact: "primary responsibility for the atrocities in Darfur rests with the regime that Bashir heads."

So there is progress. The killing in Darfur has been going on since 2003, with the death count being as high as 300,000 and approximately 2.5 million people forced out of their homes.

I, for one, am praying that the international community will be able to put a stop to this.

I also sent a message to President Obama, which you can do, as well.
