    Sudan's president has arrived in Chad on his first trip to a full member state of the International Criminal Court, which is demanding his arrest for war crimes and genocide.

    Omar Al Bashir entered the capital N'Djamena to a warm welcome, with Chad saying it is under no obligation to arrest him.

    He will be attending a summit of the Sahel-Saharan states in the country, despite Chad being a signatory of the Rome Statute that binds members to honour arrest warrants issued by the global court.
