BRASILIA (Reuters) - Brazil's federal police were executing search and seizure warrants in the northeastern state of Pernambuco in the latest phase of a sweeping, three-year-old probe into corruption centering on state oil company Petrobras, Globo News TV said on Tuesday.

The warrants were issued by the Supreme Court, suggesting the targets were politicians who can only be tried by that tribunal, Globo News said.
