House of former Peruvian president is searched:
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.
