Washington: FBI agents interviewed ex-CIA chief David Petraeus Friday to probe whether secret files had been passed to the woman at the center of the scandal that brought him down, USA Today reported.

Petraeus, America's most celebrated military leader in a generation, stepped down in November as head of the spy agency after admitting to an affair with his biographer Paula Broadwell.

The move ended a storied career marked by his tenure as military commander in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

USA Today cited a federal law enforcement official as saying that the interview at Petraeus's home in northern Virginia just outside Washington was part of an ongoing investigation into whether Broadwell had received classified information or whether such files were kept at an unauthorized location.

The investigation is taking considerable time to complete, according to the official.
