FBI Investigates Assets of Ousted Tunisian President

From the Wall Street Journal (mobile):

The Federal Bureau of Investigation will begin taking a look for assets illegally withdrawn from Tunisia by the ousted head of state.

According to this article, the World Bank estimates $20 to $40B are lost by developing nations each year due to corruption.  This should be interesting.  I bet the French are looking, too.  Reports are that Zine El Abidine Ben Ali was denied the courtesy of  landing in France.  He is presently cooling his authoritarian heels in Saudi Arabia.
