MEXICO CITY - An "indignant" Mexico said on Wednesday it has launched an investigation into allegations that the Mexican unit of Wal-Mart Stores Inc bribed officials to expand its business there, opening a new front to a widening probe of the world's largest retailer.

The Mexican federal comptroller's office said it had begun checking the federal paperwork and permits that Wal-Mart de Mexico, known as Walmex, obtained to open and operate its stores in Mexico.

Mexican President Felipe Calderon rounded on Wal-Mart during a speech in Houston, Texas, on Wednesday.
