Police raid Google's offices

Police raided Google’s offices in South Korea this morning, as the country became the latest to investigate the firm’s StreetView service.
 
Cyber crime investigators are probing whether Google’s fleet of camera cars have collected data from individual web users while scouring the country ahead of a planned launch of the StreetView service, the Yonhap News Agency reports.
 
Collecting the data would breach South Korea’s communications and privacy laws, the domestic news agency said.
 
The country’s National Police Agency said the investigation centered on the illegal collection of WiFi data by the StreetView cars, ABC News reported.
 
Google admitted in May that faulty software had resulted in similar data being collected in other countries.
 
It now faces probes in Europe, Hong Kong, Macau and the US over the matter.
