ABU DHABI -- The Abu Dhabi government is seeking to have two former officials of the failed Bank of Credit and Commerce International sent to the Persian Gulf sheikdom to serve prison sentences, Attorney General Mohammad Dahiri said.

Abu Dhabi wants Interpol to arrest BCCI's 71-year-old founder, Agha Hassan Abedi, who is reportedly in Pakistan. It also wants Ziauddin Akbar, who is serving a six-year sentence in Britain on BCCI-related charges, to serve a sentence in Abu Dhabi.
