Swiss authorities 
step up Fifa probe

Swiss authorities searched more houses as part of its criminal investigation into suspected corruption in world football.

They have added former Fifa general secretary Urs Linsi to the list of suspects.

The Office of the Attorney General of Switzerland said in an e-mail yesterday that the "measures were carried out as part of the investigations relating to a payment of 6.7 million euros (S$10.1 million) made in April 2005 by the German Football Association to Robert Louis-Dreyfus." - REUTERS
