Two Sudan rebel leaders arrived in The Hague on Wednesday after surrendering to appear before the International Criminal Court on war crimes charges, the court said.

"Abdallah Banda Abakaer Nourain and Saleh Mohammed Jerbo Jamus, both suspected of having committed war crimes in Darfur, Sudan, arrived voluntarily this morning at the International Criminal Court," a statement said.

"Both suspects will stay at the location assigned to them by the court until their first appearance before the chamber" on Thursday morning.

The men face three counts of war crimes allegedly committed in an attack on the Haskanita military base in north Darfur on September 29, 2007, which claimed 12 African Union peacekeepers.
