Mexico's attorney general said Wednesday an arrest warrant had been issued for Emilio Lozoya, the former CEO of state oil company Pemex, as part of a probe into the company's purchase of fertilizer businesses in the previous government.

Attorney General Alejandro Gertz also told broadcaster Televisa the actions of Pemex's board at the time would need to be analyzed during the probe. That could raise questions about the role of senior officials in the previous administration because of various ministries' representation on Pemex's board.
