Former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn leaves prison on bail

The former head of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) has been released from a New York City jail after posting $1m (£618,000) cash bail.

Dominique Strauss-Kahn, who denies charges of attempting to rape a hotel maid, is to be kept in home detention at a temporary location in Manhattan.

He had earlier agreed to be confined to a luxury flat but residents there refused to accept him, reports said.
