    Default African leaders vote to give themselves immunity from war crimes

    This is not THE ONION.

    African leaders gathered for a continent-wide summit voted to give themselves and their allies immunity from prosecution for war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide at a new African Court of Justice and Human Rights.

    The decision comes as the continent confronts human-rights violations and has two sitting presidents and one ousted president facing charges at the International Criminal Court.

    Amnesty International called it "a backward step in the fight against impunity and a betrayal of victims of serious violations of human rights."

    You can't make this stuff up!

    "... to give themselves and their allies immunity ..."

    Each of these countries has the same vote in the UN General Assembly as the US. It boggles the mind...
