A Swiss judge in Geneva said yesterday he had issued international arrest warrants for seven Israelis in connection with an alleged plot to kidnap Athina Roussel - the sole surviving heir to the Greek shipping tycoon, Aristotle Onassis.

Judge Jacques Delieutraz called the suspects, several of whom were former Israeli army officers, "agents" who had done the "dirty work" of preparing the abduction by photographing the 12-year-old and her security entourage in Switzerland. - Reuters, Geneva
