US, European, and Arab leaders are gathering in Paris Saturday for a meeting that will seek to define the terms of military engagement against Muammar Qaddafi's military forces.
The Kenyan suspects, four of them members of the government, are requested to appear at The Hague April 7 on charges of organizing ethnic clashes after the 2007 presidential election.
The International Criminal Court today announced it would investigate Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi and several members of his inner circle for crimes against humanity in Libya’s ongoing uprising. It is the second-ever ICC investigation into a sitting head of state, and one of only a handful of inquiries into crimes committed by world leaders. Below, a look at ICC cases:
President Obama says he has asked the Pentagon and other agencies to come up with ways that the US could help protect Libyans in case the 'situation deteriorates rapidly.'
The international community is struggling to respond to the escalating Libya conflict. Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi has warned of “bloodshed” if other countries intervene, and the opposition rebels have yet to formally request military assistance. Here's what's been done so far.
Hillary Clinton says Muammar Qaddafi must leave office 'now, without further violence or delay.' Global pressure intensifies with talk of no-fly zone and court inquiry into alleged crimes.
A vast majority of Kenyans support an investigation against politicians accused of inciting violence, despite parliament's vote to pull out of the International Criminal Court.
The chief prosecutor of the world's only permanent war-crimes tribunal has accused six leading Kenyans of crimes against humanity in a case that could break Kenya's pattern of impunity.
Luis Moreno Ocampo, prosecutor for the International Criminal Court, named six top Kenyans – including government ministers, a former police commissioner, and a radio talk-show host – for sowing widespread violence following the disputed elections of Dec. 27, 2007.
