Ukraine Asks Interpol to Arrest Yanukovych

Interpol said on Thursday it was studying a request by Ukrainian authorities to issue an international wanted persons alert for the arrest of President Viktor Yanukovych for abuse of power and murder.

In a statement quoted by The Associated Press (AP), the international police organization said it received a request a day earlier from Ukrainian authorities to issue a "Red Notice," which informs Interpol's 190-member countries that an arrest warrant has been issued. It is not an international arrest warrant.
