France confirms new arrest in SocGen scandal

PARIS (Reuters) - The Paris prosecutor's office said on Wednesday it had made a fresh arrest as part of its inquiry into trading losses at Societe Generale.

The prosecutor's office identified the person being held as a trader from a subsidiary of the French bank which has blamed a rogue trader for dealings that led to a 4.9 billion euros ($7.53 billion) net loss.
