Breaking News: Spanish court orders international warrant arrests of former China President Jiang Zemin after activists accused Chinese forces committed genocide in Tibet on 1980s and 1990s.

Tibetan rights groups brought the case against Jiang, former prime minister Li Peng and three other Chinese officials, alleging they were responsible for "genocide, crimes against humanity, torture and terrorism" against Tibetans in the 1980s and 1990s.

Spain's National Court issued the arrest warrant under the doctrine of universal jurisdiction, which allows courts to try certain cases of human rights abuses committed in other countries.
