The Hague-based ICC has charged Bashir and three of his former aides with genocide.

Sudan has agreed to hand ousted president Omar Al Bashir and others to the International Criminal Court for alleged war crimes in Darfur, a member of Khartoum's ruling body said on Tuesday.  The Hague-based ICC has charged Bashir and three of his former aides with genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes in Sudan's western region during a brutal conflict from 2003.  "Those who have been indicted by the ICC, they have to go there," said Mohamed Hassan Al Taishay, a member of the ruling sovereign council, without mentioning their names.

His remarks came as a government delegation met rebel groups in Juba, capital of South Sudan.
