SAO PAULO, Brazil - Police say they have seized 48 works of art from people suspected of involvement in the kickback-corruption scandal engulfing state-owned oil company Petrobras.

The Federal Police agency says in a statement that the seized artworks include paintings by Salvador Dali and Brazilian artists Vik Muniz, Pedro Motta and Romero Britto.

The works that were seized in Rio de Janeiro arrived Wednesday for safekeeping at the Oscar Niemeyer Museum in the city of Curitiba.

Officials did not say who owned the works or what they are worth.

Another 16 paintings seized last year as part of the investigation into the corruption scheme at Petrobras are also on exhibit at the museum.
