Police say Croatian ex-PM arrested in Austria
Croatia: Croatian police say the former Prime Minister Ivo Sanader has been arrested in Austria on an international warrant, a day after he left the country amid a corruption probe.
In a statement mailed to The Associated Press, police spokesman Krunoslav Borovec said Austrian police informed them that Sanader was arrested on Friday at 3.50 p.m. (1430 GMT) "in the Salzburg area."
Sanader, who abruptly resigned as prime minister 17 months ago, left Croatia on Thursday morning, when it became clear that prosecutors want to investigate him on charges of conspiring to commit crime and abuse of office.
