Sudan president on 1st visit to post-Gadhafi Libya

Sudan president on 1st visit to post-Gadhafi Libya

Sudan's President Omar al-Bashir is in Tripoli on his first visit since the fall of Moammar Gadhafi, in a bid to restore relations which soured in the last years of the Libyan dictator.
Airport sources said al-Bashir arrived Saturday with a high-level delegation for a two-day visit.
Khartoum had accused Gadhafi of supporting Sudanese rebels in the western region of Darfur. In return, al-Bashir openly said he supported Libyan rebels in their 2011 uprising, providing them with weapons and money.
Ironically, al-Bashir, like Gadhafi _ who was killed in October_ is wanted by the International Criminal Court for crimes against humanity for his role in orchestrating a bloody crackdown against the Darfur rebels.
