BEIRUT/TOKYO -- A Lebanese judge barred Carlos Ghosn from traveling abroad during a court hearing Thursday, with the former Nissan Motor chairman agreeing to submit his French passport to authorities, sources told Nikkei.

The ban is based on a "red notice" issued by Interpol at the request of the Japanese government. It conveys to the world that the fugitive ex-executive is wanted by Tokyo.
