US personnel in Afghanistan are being investigated by the ICC.
The US has revoked the entry visa for the prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC), Fatou Bensouda.
The decision is thought to be the US response to Ms Bensouda's investigation into possible war crimes by American forces and their allies in Afghanistan.
The US secretary of state had warned the US might refuse or revoke visas to any ICC staff involved in such probes.
Ms Bensouda's office said the ICC prosecutor would continue to her duties "without fear or favour".
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said: "If you're responsible for the proposed ICC investigation of US personnel in connection with the situation in Afghanistan, you should not assume that you will still have or get a visa, or that you will be permitted to enter the United States.
"We're prepared to take additional steps, including economic sanctions if the ICC does not change its course," he added.

Bring them home and put them on the border. Then they are out of reach of these commies. And I’m getting fed up with all these wimps saying that putting troops on the border violates one thing or the other. The border is a war zone now.
Ms. Bensouda just learned firsthand a good old American expression: “don’t let the door hit you on the way out”
Easy way to deal with the UN buzzards. Pull all the visas. No people, no UN. Tell them they need to move to Brussels.
Just start shelling the UN Building until the back off.

It’s the American way.”
The US never ratified the treaty granting the ICC jurisdiction over US citizens. We do not recognize this court and we do not recognize its authority.
