The Latest on the looming arrest of Brazil's ex-President "Lula" (all times local):
Former Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva told supporters he will comply with an arrest warrant and turn himself in to police.
The former leader spoke on Saturday for the first time since Judge Sergio Moro issued a warrant for his arrest on Thursday.
Da Silva was to present himself to authorities by 5 p.m. Friday, but did not do so. Instead, he stayed holed up in a metal workers union that was the spiritual birthplace of his improbable rise to power in Latin America's largest nation.
Da Silva did not say where or when he would turn himself in. Party leaders have suggested it would be later Saturday.
