Police raid Google Korea on suspicion of illicit data collection
SEOUL, May 3 (Yonhap) -- Seoul police on Tuesday raided Google Korea's head office in southern Seoul on suspicion that the global search company had used its mobile advertising platform to illegally collect private data, officials said.

The Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency (SMPA) sent its investigators to the local office of Google Inc. in Yeoksam-dong, southern Seoul, earlier Tuesday to secure hard drives and other computer data related to the company's "AdMob" platform, said the officials.
