TOKYO/BEIRUT -- Interpol issued a wanted notice for Carlos Ghosn on Thursday at the request of Japanese investigators following the former Nissan Motor chief's mysterious escape to Lebanon from house arrest in Tokyo.

Lebanese Justice Minister Albert Serhan confirmed with The Associated Press that the country had received a notice from Interpol, but that it does not intend to extradite Ghosn back to Japan. Serhan suggested that Ghosn could face questioning by Lebanese prosecutors.
