    The use of "who"

    "Such networks have recently caught the eye of American regulators, who fret that investors may be using them to ferret out illegal inside information."

    Above is quote from the economist magazine, "who fret that investors may be using them to ferret out illegal inside information", "who" in the sentence is used to describe "American regulator" or "the networks"

    Could somebody please help me please. Thank you.
