The US offices of three Toyota suppliers — Denso International America, Yazaki North America and Tokai Rika — were raided by the FBI in what one company said was an antitrust investigation, on Wednesday.

News of the raid came as Toyota president Akio Toyoda was being grilled by US lawmakers about auto defects which have led to accidents, deaths and the recall of some 8.5 million vehicles worldwide.

A Denso spokeswoman denied the raids were related to the Toyota probe.
