AMSTERDAM (Reuters) - The International Criminal Court (ICC) said on Monday it would refer Jordan to the U.N. Security Council for failing to arrest Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir when he visited Amman in March.

Bashir is wanted by the court for alleged genocide, and Jordan, as a member, is obliged to carry out its arrest warrants.
