Interpol has issued a so-called "Red Notice"—an international arrest warrant—for Muammar Qaddafi and one of his sons. It appears that high-level Libyan officials are fleeing to Niger, and if Qaddafi were indeed found there the Red Notice would ostensibly obligate that country's officials to hand him over to the International Criminal Court. It was a similar Red Notice that ensnared Julian Assange, and we all know how that turned out.
