Africa Union: Confusion over criminal court vote
The African Union has backed a plan for a collective withdrawal from the International Criminal Court, which many countries in the continent believe unfairly targets them. But the decision, taken behind closed doors at an AU summit, is not legally binding – and individual countries will still have to vote on the idea. African leaders say the court has strayed off course by targetting presidents like Omar al-Bashir of Sudan, for atrocities in Darfur, and Uhuru Kenyatta of Kenya, for inciting post-election violence. BBC reporter Emmanuel Igunza is at the summit in Addis Abbaba.
