Interpol 'Red Notice' issued for Gaddafi


Interpol has joined the hunt for Muammar Gaddafi.

The world police organisation has issued what it calls a Red Notice for the arrest of the former dictator.

His son Saif Al-Islam and former director of military intelligence Abdullah Al-Senussi are also the subject of notices.

The International Criminal Court has requested Gaddafi’s arrest on charges of crimes against humanity, including murder and persecution.

Gaddafi has so far avoided capture, but opposition forces say they are confident he will be found.

A convoy of pro-Gaddafi officials, including a top general, this week fled to Niger, and there has been speculation that Gaddafi himself may try to go there.

But Niger says it will respect its commitments to the International Criminal Court if the ousted leader or his sons enter the country.
