The International Criminal Court (ICC) on Tuesday unsealed an arrest warrant for a top aide of the Ivory Coast’s former President, accusing him of committing crimes against humanity as commander of youth militias that took part in 2010 post-election violence. The warrant against Charles Ble Goude (40, in photo) sets up the prospect of a jurisdictional fight with his home country. Ble Goude is already in custody in Ivory Coast, and authorities there have indicated they intend to try him at home. The warrant describes him as a member of ex-President Laurent Gbagbo’s “inner circle”. — AP
