International Criminal Court requests Interpol red notice in hunt for former Libyan leader

War crimes court prosecutor Luis Moreno-Ocampo has asked Interpol to help with the arrest of fugitive former Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi for crimes against humanity, his office said on Thursday.

"The prosecutor of the International Criminal Court, Luis Moreno-Ocampo, is requesting Interpol to issue a red notice to arrest Muammar Gaddafi for the alleged crimes against humanity of murder and persecution," it said in a press release.

An Interpol red notice seeks the arrest, extradition or surrender of a person to an international court based on an arrest warrant.

The prosecutor is also requesting red notices for the arrest of one of Gaddafi's son Seif al-Islam and his intelligence chief Abdullah al-Senussi, it added.
