FRANKFURT, Nov 29 (Reuters) - Roughly 170 criminal police officers, prosecutors and tax inspectors on Thursday searched six Deutsche Bank offices in and around Frankfurt on money laundering allegations, the public prosecutor said in a statement.
The investigations are directed against two Deutsche Bank staff members who are alleged to have helped clients set up off-shore firms to launder money gained from criminal deeds, the prosecutor said.
Deutsche Bank was not immediately available for comment.
Its shares lost 3 percent at 0923 GMT. (Reporting by Arno Schuetze Editing by Ludwig Burger)
