Human Rights Group Calls for Arrest of Bush During Africa Trip

5 Dec

The African nation of Zambia has rejected the call from an international rights group to arrest former President George W. Bush during his tour of Africa.

Amnesty International, an international human rights group, is asking Zambia for Bush’s arrest based on allegations of his involvement of torture and authorizing waterboarding during his time in office.

However, officials from Zambia say they will not arrest Bush unless charges are placed from the International Criminal Court on behalf of the United Nations.

His visit to Zambia ended Saturday.

Bush arrived in Ethiopia Sunday with his wife Laura where they visited children at a hospital. It would mark the final leg of his trip.
The tour is part of Bush’s campaign to raise awareness about health programs in Africa.

Bush is also pushing wealthy nations to provide resources to fight cancer and AIDS on the continent.

He added that the American people must do their part to help the cause.
