French judges tapped the phone calls of former President Nicolas Sarkozy as part of a probe into allegations former Libyan dictator Muammar Qaddafi helped finance his 2007 election campaign, a French daily reported Friday.

Judicial sources told AFP that a recorded call between Sarkozy and his lawyer Thierry Herzog was the basis for an investigation opened last week into a suspected attempt to influence the outcome of ongoing court proceedings in another corruption case.
