Be on the lookout for Bashir

The International Criminal Court issued an arrest warrant for Sudanese President Omar Hassan al-Bashir on Wednesday for war crimes in Darfur in a decision that could spark even more regional turmoil.

The warrant is the first issued against a sitting head of state by the Hague-based court, which stopped short of including a count of genocide over a conflict that U.N. officials say has killed as many as 300,000 people since 2003.

They warn the average citizen to not attempt to capture Bashir on their own, as he could well be surrounded by 10,000 armed men.

However, please call your local police and have them relay your message to the United Nations.

If you see him, let's say, at a local restaurant or on a golf course and decide to follow him and his men when they leave, be sure to do so with caution.

Remember, you can collect the reward offered for him when you call and you do not have to identify yourself. But listing your next of kin could be important.
