Abdallah Banda Abakaer Nourain and Saleh Mohammed Jerbo Jamus each face three counts of violence to life in the form of murder, war crimes of attacking a peacekeeping mission and pillaging, the Sudan Tribune reported Wednesday.
The men are accused of leading a rebel force in the September 2007 attack on the African Mission in Sudan base in Haskanita, North Darfur, in which a dozen peacekeepers were killed. They also allegedly stole vehicles, refrigerators, computers, cellphones, ammunition and money.
A third rebel commander, Bahr Idriss Abu Garda, was cleared by the ICC, based in The Hague, Netherlands.
Banda and Jerbo have maintained that the base was a legitimate military target, the Tribune said.
The ICC also has issued warrants alleging war crimes in Darfur against Sudanese Defense Minister Abdel-Rahim Mohamed Hussein, South Kordofan governor Ahmad Haroun, pro-government Janjaweed militia leader Ali Kushayb and Sudanese President Omer Hassan al-Bashir.
ICC prosecutors have accused the men of genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes in Darfur during decade-long fighting.
