Interpol issues "red notices" for 4 Iranian suspects in embassy bombing

From Interpol:

INTERPOL, acting on a request from India's Central Bureau of Investigation, has issued Red Notices for four suspects wanted in connection with the 13 February bomb attack on an Israeli diplomat’s car in New Delhi.

Details of the suspects Mohammadreza Abolghashemi, Houshang Afshar Irani, Seyed Ali Mahdiansadr and Masoud Sedaghatzadeh who are all wanted for terrorism related offences including criminal conspiracy and attempted murder, have been transmitted to INTERPOL’s 190 member countries.

The attack left a 42-year-old female diplomat with serious injuries and also wounded her driver and two bystanders.

INTERPOL Secretary General Ronald K. Noble said India’s request for the Red Notices would make it extremely difficult for the suspects to travel internationally in an attempt to evade capture.

“Through requesting INTERPOL Red Notices, India has ensured that law enforcement officials around the globe are alerted to the wanted status of these fugitives, and therefore reduces their options for international travel,” said Mr Noble.
