Interpol alert over Gaddafi family

Interpol has issued an international alert for Muammar Gaddafi and 15 other family members and close associates in a bid to help enforce sanctions against his regime.

The international police organisation issues the orange notice when an act or event poses a risk to public safety.

The alert is sent to Interpol's 188 members around the world, providing law enforcement and border police information on the targeted individuals that can be used to block their movements and freeze their assets.

Interpol said that Gaddafi and the other targeted individuals "have been identified as being involved in or complicit in planning attacks, including aerial bombardments, on civilian populations".
