86 people allegedly involved in coup plots in Turkey.

A top Turkish prosecutor, Aykut Cengiz Engin, has brought charges against 86 people allegedly involved in a coup plot. Of the 86 people 48 are already in custody, so another 38 arrests, who's next?

"The indictment covers crimes such as forming an armed terror group... and attempting to overthrow the government by force," Mr Engin said.

China's reputation in Africa

The prosecutor Luis Moreno-Ocampo of the International Crime Court (ICC) in La Hague wants to prosecute the Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir for war crimes and crimes against humanity.
At the same time the Chinese state is doing good business with Sudan and Zimbabwe, and they voted last week Friday a resolution of the UN security council for more sanctions against Mugabe and its gang away.
It shows China its mentality: an a-moral attitude. Not a successful Olympic games can take that negative image away.
Update: The chief prosecutor of the International Criminal Court has filed genocide charges against Sudanese President Omar Hassan al-Bashir for a five-year campaign of violence in Darfur.
The U.N. estimates 2.5 million have been forced from their homes in Darfur.
They include masterminding attempts to wipe out African tribes in the war-torn region with a campaign of murder, rape and deportation.
ICC Chief Prosecutor Luis Moreno-Ocampo presented his evidence against al-Bashir to the judges at the Hague in the Netherlands on Monday.
