PARIS (AP) - Interpol has issued red notices for the arrest of the former Libyan strongman Moammar Gadhafi, his son Seif al-Islam and the country's ex-head of military intelligence, Abdullah al-Senussi.
The move comes in response to a request by the prosecutor of the International Criminal Court, which is seeking the men for alleged crimes against humanity.
Gadhafi hasn't been seen in public for months and went
underground after anti-regime fighters swept into Tripoli on Aug. 21. Interpol said in a statement Friday it had transmitted the red notices to its 188 member countries.
The head of the Lyon, France-based organization, Ronald Nobel, called the notices "a powerful tool" in helping lead to the capture of the Gadhafis and al-Senussi.
