Interpol Issues Wanted Notice for Zarqawi


The international police organization Interpol has issued a wanted notice for Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the leader of the al Qaida in Iraq terrorist network.

Interpol says Algerian officials requested a so-called Red Notice on the Jordanian-born terrorist in connection with the kidnapping and murder of two Algerian diplomats in Iraq last July.

Interpol officials said the notice will be distributed to its 184 member nations and will decrease the likelihood the suspect will be able to escape detection.

Abu Musab al-Zarqawi is already the most wanted man in Iraq, with the United States offering a $25 million bounty for his capture.

Abu Musab al-Zarqawi is also wanted in Jordan. He claimed responsibility for organizing suicide attacks that killed 59 people at two luxury hotels in Amman last month.
