Technology giant Apple and major publishers are being sued by the US Department of Justice over pricing of e-books.

The US accuses Apple and book publishers Hachette, HarperCollins, Macmillan and Penguin of colluding on prices of books on the iPad.

The lawsuit comes a day after Apple surpassed $600bn (379bn) in value.

The increase affirmed its position as the world's most valuable firm.
