The international police organization Interpol warns of a global wave of crime in connection with the delivery of the Covid-19 vaccine. Interpol General Secretary Stock sees thefts from storage rooms or attacks on transport routes as the greatest risk.

Criminal groups thought about how money could be made with the corona pandemic at an early stage. Fake vaccines are already being sold on the Internet.

Iran has issued an arrest warrant for Donald Trump and more than 30 other unnamed individuals for their alleged involvement in the killing of General Qassem Soleimani in January 2020. The warrants have been issued on the charges of murder and terrorist action, and Tehran prosecutor Ali Alqasimehr has asked Interpol to put out a "red notice", the highest-level notice by Interpol, for Trump and the others involved.

A red notice allows local authorities to arrests suspects on behalf of the country that made the request. Interpol's involvement is unlikely as the notice forbids "from undertaking any intervention or activities of a political" nature.
