US imposes visa bans on ICC personnel over probe into Afghan war crimes

The United States says it will withdraw or deny visas to any International Criminal Court personnel investigating possible war crimes by US forces or allies in Afghanistan.

Pompeo said that the visa restrictions would not be the end of Washington’s efforts. He threatened additional steps, including economic sanctions, against the ICC if the court does not change its course.
