Strauss-Kahn in gang rape claim

PARIS. Dominique Strauss-Kahn could face gang rape charges after an escort girl said the former International Monetary Fund chief and three others held her down and forced her to have anal sex.

The latest revelation involving Mr Strauss-Kahn, a one-time French Socialist presidential hopeful, has heaped further embarrassment on the party. The state prosecutor is considering an inquiry into the allegations by a 25-year-old Belgian call girl over her treatment by Mr Strauss-Kahn in a Washington hotel in December 2010. Mr Strauss-Kahn denies any wrongdoing. Mr Strauss-Kahn is under investigation for ''aggravated pimping in an organised gang''.
