THE HAGUE (Reuters) – The International Criminal Court on Friday said it will continue to do its work “undeterred” after U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Washington would target individuals involved in cases involving U.S. citizens.

The ICC said it was “an independent and impartial judicial institution crucial for ensuring accountability for the gravest crimes under international law.”

It will “continue to do its independent work, undeterred, in accordance with its mandate and the overarching principle of the rule of law,” it said in a statement.
