FBI searches headquarters of labor union in Philadelphia



PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Federal agents have searched two sites connected to a Philadelphia-based union, apparently as part of an ongoing investigation of a indicted powerful labor boss.

An attorney for Local 98 leader John Dougherty said union officials were still gathering information on the nature of the warrants.
