RIO DE JANEIRO (Reuters) - Brazil's federal police were making new arrests and executing search and seizure warrants on Friday in the latest round of the so-called "Car Wash" operation, the country's largest-ever corruption investigation.

Police said Friday's raids sought to find evidence of crimes in financial transactions related to the purchase of oil exploration rights in the African country of Benin by Brazil's state-controlled oil firm Petroleo Brasileiro SA.
