Sudan's Bashir, wanted by ICC, says he plans to travel to U.N.

Published: Updated:

Sudanese President Omar Hassan al-Bashir, wanted by the International Criminal Court on genocide charges, said on Sunday he planned to attend this week's U.N. General Assembly and had already booked a hotel in New York.

At a news conference, Bashir did not say whether the United States had granted him a visa yet, but did say he had made preparations to fly to New York via Morocco.

“Attending the General Assembly is our right,” he said.
