Report: FIFA officials again subject of pre-dawn raids

The Associated Press

ZURICH (AP) The New York Times says Swiss authorities have conducted another series of pre-dawn raids and arrests as part of investigations into corruption in international soccer.

The newspaper, citing law enforcement officials, reported that at least some of the arrests took place at the same luxury hotel where FIFA officials were arrested in May in early morning raids that rocked the sport.

The report said Swiss police entered the hotel, the Baur au Lac, through a side door at 6 a.m. A hotel manager told visitors in the lobby they had to leave the property because of "an extreme situation."

Authorities in Switzerland, where FIFA has its headquarters, and in the U.S. are investigating current and former senior soccer officials on charges that include racketeering, money laundering and fraud.
