Croatian ex-PM Ivo Sanader arrested in Austria

Former Croatian Prime Minister Ivo Sanader, who is wanted in connection with a corruption investigation, has been arrested by police in Austria, BBC reports. Mr Sanader left Croatia on Thursday shortly before parliament lifted his immunity from prosecution, and the authorities later issued a warrant for his arrest. Police stopped him on a motorway in western Austria. Sanader says the accusations against him are politically motivated.
