People walk past a Citibank branch in New York(Reuters) - Citigroup Inc said it agreed to pay $7 billion to settle a U.S. government investigation into mortgage-backed securities the bank sold in the run-up to the 2008 financial crisis. Citigroup said on Monday it would pay a total of $4.5 billion in cash and provide $2.5 billion in consumer relief. The bank said it would take a related pre-tax charge of about $3.8 billion in the second quarter. The settlement figure was more that twice what many analysts expected earlier this year but less than the $12 billion the government had sought in negotiations with the bank.
