Interpol has put ousted Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi's son al-Saadi on the equivalent of its most-wanted list and says he was last seen in Niger.
The international police agency said in a statement Thursday that it has issued a red notice for al-Saadi Gaddafi, based on a request by the opposition authorities who overthrew Gaddafi last month.

Interpol says the notice was based on accusations that al-Saadi Gaddafi, who is 38, misappropriated property and engaged in "armed intimidation" when he headed the Libyan Football Federation.
He was also a Special Forces commander and is the subject of a United Nations sanction for commanding military units involved in repression of demonstrations.
