Sudan's Al-Bashir Demands Trial Judge Step Down

The defence lawyer in the trial of ousted president Omar al-Bashir, Baroud Sandal Rajab, has accused one of the court's two judges of bias, demanding that he recuse himself. The former leader and twenty-seven of his aides are accused of plotting a coup on June 30, 1989 that brought him to power. He is also wanted by the International Criminal Court for crimes committed in Darfur during his tenure as president.
