    The European Commission said on Tuesday that it had raided offices of Intel Corp and computer makers and sellers across Europe.

    Commission spokesman Jonathan Todd said: "Commission officials accompanied by officials from national competition authorities are conducting since this morning onsite inspections at several premises of Intel corp in Europe as well as at a number of IT firms, manufacturing or selling computers."

    He added: "These inspections are carried out within the framework of an ongoing competition investigation."

    Intel is under investigation by the commission's competition department for alleged unfair trade practices.
