Obama administration officials were stunned last spring when they found $US37 billion in Libyan regime accounts and investments in the United States, and they quickly froze the assets before Gaddafi or his aides could move them.

Governments in France, Italy, England and Germany seized control of another $US30 billion or so. Investigators estimated that Gaddafi had stashed perhaps another $US30 billion elsewhere in the world, for a total of about $US100 billion.

But subsequent investigations by American, European and Libyan authorities determined that Gaddafi secretly sent tens of billions more abroad over the years and made sometimes lucrative investments in nearly every major country, including much of the Middle East and Southeast Asia, officials said Wednesday.

Most of the money was under the name of government institutions such as the Central Bank of Libya, the Libyan Investment Authority, the Libyan Foreign Bank, the Libyan National Oil Corp and the Libya Africa Investment Portfolio.
