Bush not at risk of arrest in Europe - experts

European law enforcement officials and other experts say the chances of George W. Bush being arrested on war crimes charges in Switzerland--or any place else on the continent--are almost nil.

"From a legal point of view, I believe it could be possible. But I'm convinced that the political reality is that there are no chances for such a step."

- Dick Marty, a Swiss prosecutor who led Council of Europe’s investigation into CIA secret prisons.
