District attorney vows to seek Strauss-Kahn case 'truth and facts'

Former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn has been released from house arrest and had his $6m (£3.7m) cash bail and bond returned, according to reports.

He is accused of sexually assaulting a maid in a New York hotel on 14 May.

But the case is rumoured to be close to collapse after serious doubts arose about the credibility of his accuser.

Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus R Vance Jr made a statement shortly after Mr Strauss-Kahn appeared in court on Friday.

He said that prosecutors would continue their investigation, saying that his office's commitment was "to the truth and to the facts".
