NEW YORK (AP) — Former International Monetary Fund chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn has returned to his rented New York City townhouse after leaving for a few hours.
He stepped from a vehicle outside the Manhattan home Saturday afternoon and went quickly inside.
Strauss-Kahn has been accused by a hotel maid of trying to rape her in May. Prosecutors told a judge on Friday they had discovered serious problems with the maid's credibility. The judge subsequently lifted his house arrest, allowing him to travel in the U.S. but not abroad.
Strauss-Kahn had left the house in the Tribeca neighborhood with his wife for about three hours Saturday. With reporters watching, the couple had gotten into a car and sped off. It's unknown where they went.
