Nigeria Must Arrest Sudanese President Omar Al-Bashir In Abuja – Human Rights Watch Group

Human Rights Watch on Saturday urged Nigeria to arrest Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir if he attends an African AIDS summit scheduled for Abuja, the Nigerian capital next week.

The arrest should be made, if the Nigerian government fails to stop al-Bashir from staying away at the conference, HRW said.

Nigeria is a member of the International Criminal Court which has charged Bashir with war crimes, genocide and crimes against humanity over the conflict in Sudan’s Darfur region.

Khartoum confirmed that Bashir has been invited to the Nigerian capital, which is hosting an African Union HIV/AIDS summit that opens Monday.

But if you’re in a Zimbabwe hospital and you yell out during childbirth, your stay at the hospital could cost you extra.

At a hospital in Zimbabwe, the Global Corruption Barometer, a group that campaigns against corruption, released its annual report, revealing that a Zimbabwe hospital exploits poor new mothers by charging them $5 every time they scream. The charge is said to be for ‘causing false alarm’, according to the report.
