Lehman Bros sells off shares

NEW YORK - US investment bank Lehman Brothers is selling $3 billion of its shares to raise capital to boost its balance sheet.

Lehman Bros joins a growing group of investment banks, including Merrill Lynch, Citi and Morgan Stanley, that have all had to raise money from investors to offset their subprime losses.
