Ecuador court orders ex-president's arrest
A court in Ecuador ordered the arrest of former president Rafael Correa on Tuesday over his alleged involvement in the 2012 kidnapping of an opponent. Mr Correa, who now lives in his wife's native Belgium, denies the allegations. Judge Daniella Camacho said she has alerted Interpol in a bid to have the 55-year-old extradited. Former lawmaker Fernando Balda was briefly kidnapped in Bogotá, Colombia, where he fled during escalating tensions with Mr Correa.
