Dominique Strauss-Kahn meets rape accuser Banon

Ex-IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn and the French writer who accuses him of attempted rape have confronted each other as part of a police inquiry.

Police are investigating Tristane Banon's complaint before prosecutors decide whether to press charges.

Mr Strauss-Kahn is said to admit making "an advance" on Ms Banon, but denies any violence, and is suing for slander.

As the BBC's Christian Fraser explains, Ms Banon had wanted the meeting so she could "look into the eyes of Dominique Strauss-Kahn".
