Xinhua: South Korea has become the first country to bring official charges against Google in relation to its Street View cars. Google's offices in the country were raided by police on Thursday for information related to the incident. South Korea's Cyber Terror Response Center said its month-long investigation revealed that Google had illegally obtained and stored e-mails, instant messages, internet site IDs and passwords, credit card information and other personal information for approximately 600,000 Koreans.

Several other countries are still investigating similar incidents. Google says it is cooperating with authorities.
