SINGAPORE: Interpol, the international police agency, has issued a global alert over an illicit and potentially lethal drug used as a dieting and body-building aid.

The Orange Notice warning about 2.4-dinitrophenol (DNP), which is also used as a raw material for explosives, was issued after one woman died in Britain and a Frenchman was hospitalised in a serious condition after consuming the substance, Interpol said on Monday.
