Associated Press

RAID: Korea Hydro & Nuclear Power Co., South Korea's sole nuclear power plant operator, said investigators raided its offices, a sign that a probe into faulty nuclear plant cables is widening.

ALLEGED WRONGDOING: The company, which is owned by state-owned Korea Electric Power Corp., said prosecutors seized documents and computer hard drives from at least four offices. An official with the prosecutor's office said the documents seized were in connection with "wrongdoings in supplying components for nuclear power plants."

SHUTDOWNS: Last month, South Korea shut down two nuclear power plants after discovering that a company contracted to conduct performance tests on control cables had fabricated the results.
