Interpol has issued 'international wanted persons' alerts for two former FIFA officials and four corporate executives as part of the investigation into football-related corruption.

The 'red notices' have been issued at the request of the US justice department for charges including racketeering, conspiracy and corruption.

Former FIFA vice-president Jack Warner from Trinidad and ex-FIFA member Nicolas Leoz from Paraguay have been named. Warner is currently on bail in Trinidad and Leoz reported to be under house arrest in Paraguay.
