The leaked financial documents show how the King of Jordan secretly amassed a property empire in the U.K. and the U.S. worth more than £70m (over $100m). They identify a network of offshore companies in the British Virgin Islands and other tax havens used by Abdullah II bin Al-Hussein to buy 15 homes since he assumed power in 1999.

They also show how ex-UK PM Tony Blair and his wife saved £312,000 in stamp duty when they bought a London office.

Among the other revelations in the Pandora Papers:

Members of Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan's inner circle, including cabinet ministers and their families, secretly own companies and trusts holding millions of dollars.
