German authorities raid soccer federation over FIFA payment

German authorities are searching the premises of the country’s soccer federation over payments made to FIFA in connection with the 2006 World Cup.

Frankfurt prosecutor Nadja Niesen says the raids are ongoing at the federation’s headquarters and at two private premises.

Niesen says “the raids are linked to the awarding of the football World Cup 2006 and the transfer of 6.7 million euros to FIFA.”

German daily Bild has published photos it says show the raid, and German news agency dpa reported that 50 officers and tax inspectors took part in the operation.
