Zurich: The Swiss Justice Ministry said it had frozen millions of Swiss francs related to world soccer body FIFA, a spokesman said on Thursday, confirming a media report.

"U.S. authorities asked for documents related to 50 accounts at different banks, through which corruption money is supposed to have transited," ministry spokesman Folco Galli said in a statement, confirming a report by Swiss newspaper Tages-Anzeiger.

He said a "high double-digit million amount" had been frozen following the U.S. query.
