  • Some rough news for the International Criminal Court's prosecutor: the Court's Pre-Trial Chamber says there wasn't 'sufficient evidence' that the first Sudanese militia leader to be brought before the court, Bahar Idriss Abu Garda, was 'criminally responsible either as a direct or as an indirect co-perpetrator'.  
  • Photo tour of a Soviet Strategic Missile Forces museum in the Ukraine.
