NNA -Sudan will hand longtime autocrat Omar al-Bashir to the International Criminal Court along with other officials wanted over the Darfur conflict, Foreign Minister Mariam al-Mahdi said on Wednesday.

The "cabinet decided to hand over wanted officials to the ICC," Mahdi was quoted as saying by state media.

Bashir, 77, has been wanted by the ICC since 2009, when it issued a warrant for his arrest.
