7-Eleven stores raided as part of US probe

Federal authorities say they've raided 7-Eleven stores in New York and Virginia as part of an investigation into human smuggling, identity theft and money laundering.

The inquiry involves allegations that store owners helped smuggle workers into the U.S. from Pakistan.

Some store owners and managers were arrested Monday. More than a dozen workers have been taken into custody by immigration officials. The New York raids were centered on Long Island.

The 7-Eleven company says in a statement that it is cooperating with federal authorities. It had no further comment.
