SEOUL, Feb 8 (Reuters) - South Korean prosecutors have searched an office of Samsung Electronics as part of their probe into a former president, Lee Myung-bak, Yonhap News Agency said on Thursday.
The move was to seek evidence of its financial support for a company allegedly controlled by Lee, Yonhap added.
