Interpol has issued an international arrest warrant for three Israelis accused of training private armies of Colombian drug cartels and rightwing death squads.

Yair Klein, a former Israeli army colonel, Melnik Ferri and Tzedaka Abraham were being sought for criminal conspiracy and instruction in terrorism and face 11 years in prison, said Oscar Galvis, of Colombia's domestic intelligence agency. The men are accused of setting up training camps for drug lords such as Pablo Escobar, teaching use of explosives, car bombs and assassination. The armies later became rightwing death squads.
