Paraguay: French woman caught on Interpol warrant

Interpol agents have arrested a French woman in Paraguay and she will face extradition back to her homeland to face a fraud charge.
Commissioner Silvio Escobar, the local Interpol chief, says Emannuelle Valerie Boucardeau, 40, was detained Monday in San Lorenzo, just outside the Paraguayan capital of Asuncion. He quotes her as saying she has been in Paraguay for a year.
Escobar says France alleges Boucardeau illegally accessed a database to fraudulently obtain government subsidies.
