Strauss-Kahn sex charges ruling delayed

A French court has delayed a ruling on whether former International Monetary Fund head Dominique Strauss-Kahn will stand trial on pimping charges.

Prosecutors at the appeals court in the French town of Douai said the decision would be made on 19 December.

The BBC's Christian Fraser says Strauss-Kahn has always maintained that he did not know the women with whom he was having sex were paid prostitutes.
