Interpol goes after Nepal rebels

The international police agency, Interpol, has issued arrest warrants for 11 top Nepalese rebels. They include the Maoist rebel leader, Prachanda, his second-in-command, Baburam Bhattarai, and spokesman Krishna Bahadur Mahara. More than 8,000 people have died in the Maoists’ eight-year insurrection aimed at replacing the Himalayan kingdom’s monarchy with a communist republic. The Interpol move comes after peace talks collapsed in Nepal in August. This is the second time Interpol has sought the arrests of top rebels. Security officials in Nepal say that the Interpol arrest warrants – known as Red Notices – will help police forces in the organisation’s 181 member countries to arrest the rebel leaders. Full Story
