President Omar al-Bashir said Sunday that the crisis in neighboring Libya has impacted Sudan, with human traffickers using the East African country's territories to commit "cross-border crimes".Speaking at a joint media conference with visiting U.N.-backed Libyan premier Fayez al-Sarraj, Bashir also said security issues in Libya had made Khartoum's fight against human trafficking "more expensive".
