WASHINGTON - The White House said on Wednesday it was investigating reports that hackers tried to hack into Google email accounts but did not believe US government email accounts were breached in the attack.

Google Inc said on Wednesday unknown hackers likely originating from central China tried to hack into the Gmail accounts of hundreds of users, including senior US government officials, Chinese activists and journalists.

"We're looking into these reports and are seeking to gather the facts," said White House spokesman Tommy Vietor. "We have no reason to believe that any US government email accounts were accessed."
