CAIRO (Reuters) - Sudanese prosecutors ordered the arrest of former intelligence chief Salah Gosh for questioning over a bank account but his guards blocked his arrest, the prosecutor's office said on Tuesday.

Gosh was to be questioned over an account containing 46 billion Sudanese pounds (801 million pounds) account which was only accessible to him, the prosecutor's office said.
