Rate Inquiry Accelerates With Arrests In London

American and British authorities are shifting to an aggressive new phase in their broad investigation of interest-rate manipulation as they identify potential criminal targets and complete settlements with some of the world’s biggest banks.

In a sign of the escalation, Britain’s Serious Fraud Office made the first arrests in connection with the rate-rigging inquiry on Tuesday.

In a predawn raid, police took three men into custody at their homes on the outskirts of London.
