Wal-Mart suspends India staff members amid bribery probe

Wal-Mart, the world's largest retailer, has suspended a "few associates" at its joint venture in India amid an ongoing probe into bribery allegations.

Wal-Mart did not provide further details.

The firm is conducting an investigation into possible violations of a US law that bans US firms from paying bribes to win or retain business abroad.
