PARIS (AFP) - French authorities have issued an international warrant for the arrest of Mesut Edipsoy, accused of aiding and abetting the alleged murderers of the former Iranian prime minister Shapur Bakhtiar in August 1991.

The Iranian-born Turk allegedly passed two forged Turkish passports to Ali Rad Vakili and Mohamad Azadi, the presumed killers, and provided flats in Istanbul that were used for planning the murder.
