FBI raids U.S. offices of All Nippon Airways

From the Associated Press

FBI agents raided the U.S. headquarters of Japan’s All Nippon Airways, authorities said.

Agents executed a federal search warrant at the carrier’s North American customer relations and services office in Torrance early Thursday morning, said FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller. She declined to say why the office was under investigation because the search warrant was under seal.

In a statement issued by its headquarters in Tokyo, the airline said it had not yet confirmed the reason for the investigation. “There is no suspicion of terrorism and the ANA flights are operating normally,” the statement said.


The center resumed operating late in the afternoon.
