E.U.
authorities have raided Intel's office in Munich, Germany. The inspectors also paid a visit to several offices belonging to Intel's suppliers and the company claims it is cooperating with investigators.

Intel spokesman, Chuck Mulloy, confirmed that Chipzilla's Munich office had been raided. "I can confirm that there has been a raid on our offices in Munich," said Mulloy, "As is our normal practice, we are co-operating with authorities."
