Reuters reports:

The International Criminal Court called on the U.N. Security Council to take action over Djibouti’s failure to arrest indicted war crimes suspect Sudanese President Omar Hassan al-Bashir during a recent visit…

The ICC said on Thursday it had informed the Security Council and the Assembly of States Parties (ASP), which oversees the work of the court, of Bashir’s visit to Djibouti to attend the inauguration ceremony of Djibouti’s president on May 8.

It urged the Security Council and the ASP “to take any measure they may deem appropriate.” Djibouti is one of two Arab League states that have signed up to the ICC, which said the African country “has an obligation” to enforce arrest warrants.
