Thieves Steal From French President's Bank Account

A Reuters newswire article, via The International Herald Tribune, reports that:

Fraudsters took money from French President Nicolas Sarkozy's personal account after managing to get hold of his bank details, a newspaper reported Sunday.

Sarkozy complained to police in September after "small amounts" were stolen from his account, the Journal du Dimanche newspaper said, quoting sources close to the investigation.

Sarkozy's office confirmed the details, the paper said. Criminal and financial fraud squads and a prosecutor in the Paris suburb of Nanterre were investigating the case.
