International Court Seeks to Arrest Moammar Khaddafy

The International Crime Court chief prosecutor is seeking an arrest warrant of Libyan leader Moammar Khaddafy and two other officials for crimes against humanity. The Washington Post reported that a 74-page document lists the crimes that Khaddafy, his son Saif al-Islam, and intelligence chief Abdullah Senussi committed against Libyan protesters over the past three months. The arrest warrants still need to be approved by the court and would allow the three officials to be arrested in any country belonging to the United Nations. But a decision doesn''t mean Khaddafy will find himself in handcuffs any time soon; an arrest warrant was issued for Sudanese President Omar Bashir in 2009 and he is still the country's head of state.
