Petraeus lover's home searched

FBI agents searched the home of the woman at the centre of a sex scandal behind David Petraeus's decision to step down as head of the Central Intelligence Agency, US media said Monday.

"Nearly a dozen" agents carried boxes and took photographs inside Paula Broadwell's home in Charlotte, North Carolina, CBS television affiliate WFMY reported.
The Charlotte Observer newspaper said agents appeared to be searching both floors of the house.

US officials had said in recent days that their investigation was largely complete and that prosecutors had determined it was unlikely they would bring charges in that case, which started when Kelley contacted an FBI agent in Tampa about harassing emails from an anonymous source.

That FBI agent, who has not been identified, has also come under scrutiny after it was discovered he had sent shirtless photographs of himself to Kelley, but "long before" this investigation.
