House of for­mer Peru­vian pres­i­dent is searched:

The Washington Post Sunday - - THE WORLD - — From news ser­vices

Author­i­ties say they have searched the house of for­mer Peru­vian pres­i­dent Ale­jan­dro Toledo, in a case in­volv­ing al­leged bribes from a mega-con­struc­tion firm un­der investigation as part of a ma­jor cor­rup­tion probe in Brazil. The search is the lat­est de­vel­op­ment in a case in Brazil that has caught up dozens of politi­cians from Latin Amer­ica in a far-reach­ing investigation. Toledo, who was Peru’s pres­i­dent from 2001 to 2006, is in Paris. He told Peru­vian news me­dia by tele­phone Fri­day that he de­nies the charges.
