Dominique Strauss-Kahn wins bail

A judge in a New York court has released the former head of the IMF, Dominique Strauss-Kahn, on bail.

Mr Strauss-Kahn has been held in custody since Monday facing charges which include the attempted rape of a New York hotel chambermaid.

He denies the charges.

His lawyer William Taylor successfully won bail for his client telling the court the idea of Mr Strauss-Kahn skipping bail was 'ludicrous'.
