ZURICH, Dec 3 (Reuters) - World soccer body FIFA is cooperating with U.S. and Swiss corruption probes, it said on Thursday after more police swoops in the case.

"FIFA became aware of the actions taken today by the U.S. Department of Justice. FIFA will continue to cooperate fully with the U.S. investigation as permitted by Swiss law, as well as with the investigation being led by the Swiss Office of the Attorney General," a statement said.
