The FBI is trying to figure out if ousted Tunisian President Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali and other officials have assets in the U.S., the Wall Street Journal reports.

Agents, along with a new Justice Department team, are looking for “proceeds of theft by foreign officials,” the Journal reported.

The paper reported that European nations have moved to freeze funds of Ben Ali they believe were stolen from his country.

Ben Ali fled to Saudi Arabia after he was ousted.
