Argentinian prosecutors are seeking an international arrest warrant for pop star Justin Bieber to force him to return to the country for questioning over a clash outside a nightclub last year (13).

Buenos Aires state prosecutor Martin Lopez has asked a judge to grant the warrant so Bieber can be brought back to Argentina to be quizzed by police about an alleged attack on a paparazzo, according to Britain's Daily Mirror.

Some of the singer's bodyguards are accused of chasing and injuring local photographer Diego Pesoa outside a nightclub after he tried to take pictures of Bieber leaving the venue while he was in the country on tour last November (13).

Pesoa headed to hospital for treatment and he later posted video footage of the alleged assault online.
