In June 2015, Sudan President Omar al-Bashir attended the African Union (AU) Summit hosted in South Africa.
In 2009 and 2010 the International Criminal Court (ICC) issued warrants of arrest for President Al-Bashir following his indictment for crimes against humanity and genocide committed in Darfur, Sudan between 2003 and 2005.
