Interpol says it has issued international notices following a request by Pakistan for the arrest of former prime minister Benazir Bhutto and her husband on corruption charges.
The international police organization says the "red notices" are not arrest warrants. It says the notices mean the couple has arrest warrants issued in one of its 184 member countries. Each country must decide whether to take any action.
Bhutto, who served twice as prime minister in the 1980s and 1990s, has lived in self-imposed exile in Dubai and London because of corruption charges. Her husband, Asif Ali Zardari, was released last year on bail after spending eight years in prison on similar charges. He now lives with his wife and children.
Bhutto is scheduled to visit the Voice of America offices in Washington and hold a news conference Thursday.
