U.S.A, Canadian, European officials walk out of Museveni's inauguration

U.S., European and Canadian representatives to the inauguration of Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni in Kampala walked out in protest on Thursday over the presence of Sudan's leader and comments made by Museveni about the International Criminal Court, the State Department said.

Sudanese President Omar Hassan al-Bashir attended the swearing-in ceremony in defiance of international warrants issued by the Hague-based ICC in 2009 and 2010 for Bashir's arrest on charges of genocide.
