Burundi has informed U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon of its decision to quit the International Criminal Court, it said Wednesday, adding momentum to mounting African opposition to the Hague-based tribunal.African states have long complained the ICC is biased, prosecuting Africans while ignoring others, but they had until recently resisted withdrawing.However, the United Nations said it had not received official notification from Burundi.The ICC said in April it would investigate outbreaks of violence in Burundi, which has been mired in a political crisis for more than a year.
