A fresh wave of arrests of FIFA officials have taken place in Switzerland, according to a report.

The New York Times reported that Swiss authorities had started a new series of arrests on Thursday as part of the ongoing investigation, which is led by United States officials.

The report said police were targeting current and former officials on charges including racketeering, money laundering and fraud.

It said president Sepp Blatter was not part of the list.

Zurich police confirmed to Omnisport they had taken “various measures” on behalf of the Swiss Federal Office of Justice on Thursday.

FIFA has faced pressure for months after several officials were indicted earlier this year.

Blatter and UEFA president Michel Platini have been suspended by the FIFA Ethics Committee as investigations continue.
