PARIS (Reuters) - Airbus’ offices were raided last week as part of an ongoing probe centred on the sale of satellites to Kazakhstan in 2010, the company said on Tuesday.

“We confirm a raid was carried out at Airbus offices in the context of the French judicial investigation relating to Kazakhstan,” said an Airbus spokesman.

“As the proceedings are currently ongoing, we have no further comment to make on the subject. Airbus is fully committed to cooperating with the authorities,” he added.
