UBS and Royal Bank of Scotland have suspended at least three more traders in Singapore as regulators widen the scope of their investigation into alleged Libor-rigging.

Bloomberg reported that at least two foreign exchange dealers have been suspended by UBS after an internal probe, while RBS also put a director on its emerging markets foreign exchange desk on leave after an investigation into the rates used to set prices on foreign exchange derivatives.
