Lawyer: Strauss-Kahn maid 'is a very courageous woman'
The former head of the International Monetary Fund, Dominique Strauss-Kahn, has entered a plea of not guilty in a New York court to charges of attempted rape and sexual assault.
The 62-year-old Frenchman is accused of assaulting a maid at the Manhattan hotel where he was staying on 14 May.
Speaking outside the court, the maid's lawyer Kenneth Thompson said Mr Strauss-Kahn could not use all of his "power, money and influence" to keep the truth from coming out.
