French Police Question Strauss-Kahn

Former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn leaves his apartment, hours after being questioned by police, in Paris September 12, 2011.

French police have questioned former International Monetary Fund chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn about an alleged rape attempt in Paris.

Police officials spoke with Strauss-Kahn for about three hours Monday about allegations by a French journalist that he tried to rape her in 2003.

Strauss-Kahn returned home to France earlier this month after separate sexual assault charges against him were dropped in the United States.

He resigned as the IMF's managing director in May after he was arrested at John F. Kennedy International airport and charged with the sexual assault and attempted rape of a hotel maid in New York City.

U.S. prosecutors later dropped the case, saying they did not trust the accuser, Guinean immigrant Nafissatou Diallo.

Strauss-Kahn has denied wrongdoing in both cases.
