Strauss-Kahn expected to settle with US sex accuser Diallo
It was a scandal that shocked France and destroyed hopes that the IMF chief could one day become French president. Dominique Strauss-Kahn's reputation was left in tatters when a chambermaid at a New York hotel accused him of attempted rape in May 2011. Although criminal charges were dropped, he's now expected to reach a financial settlement with Nafissatou Diallo, before facing allegations of "aggravated pimping" back in France.
