TOKYO, June 5 (Reuters) - Toyota Motor Corp said it will recall about 242,000 vehicles worldwide, including the Prius hybrid, due to a brake glitch.

Toyota said on Wednesday that the brake in the recalled vehicles may not work as well as it is supposed to because a part used in the electronic brake system may not be strong enough, and could crack.
