Hundreds of civilians have been killed and thousands displaced in Darfur in the past six months as violence has continued there, Luis Moreno-Ocampo, the prosecutor of the International Criminal Court, told the United Nations Security Council on Thursday. The government of Sudan was neither cooperating with the court in pursuing the perpetrators nor taking action on its own, he said. President Omar Hassan al-Bashir had ordered the attacks against civilians, the prosecutor said. The court has charged Mr. Bashir with crimes against humanity and genocide, but he has not been arrested. Sudan’s United Nations ambassador, Daffa-Alla Elhag Ali Osman, accused the prosecutor of recycling unconfirmed allegations.
