JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) - The FBI has opened an investigation into U.S. links to South Africa's Guptas, escalating a scandal over the family's alleged use of a friendship with President Jacob Zuma to control state businesses, the Financial Times said on Thursday.

The newspaper, which cited "people familiar with the matter", said U.S. investigators had been looking at individuals, bank accounts and companies in the U.S. for ties to alleged graft involving the family. It gave no further details.

The Gupta family and Zuma have denied any wrongdoing.
