26 april 2010 - NCP party's Khartoum headquarters, Karthoum, Sudan - Sudan's President Omar Hassan al-Bashir addresses the nation after being re-elected at the NCP Headquarters in Khartoum. He wins another term in office, according to election officials, with a comfortable majority in elections marred by boycotts and fraud allegations, becoming the first leader to be elected while facing an international arrest warrant for alleged crimes he orchestrated in the western region of Darfur. The elections take place as Sudan heads toward a referendum in eight months that could lead South Sudan to split off and become Africa's newest nation. Photo credit: Benedicte Desrus
