One day after announcing the ouster of President Omar Hassan al-Bashir, the Sudanese military officials who have taken power said they had no intention of extraditing the deposed president, who is wanted by the International Criminal Court on charges including genocide and crimes against humanity, connected to atrocities in the Sudanese region of Darfur.

But he will be tried in Sudan, an army official said on Friday at a news conference in Khartoum, the capital, according to The Associated Press.
