Strauss-Kahn at NYC airport, likely bound for France in 1st return since arrest
NEW YORK (AP) ' Former International Monetary Fund leader Dominique Strauss-Kahn is at a New York City airport and appears to be headed back to his native France.
Strauss-Kahn and his wife were seen arriving at the Air France terminal at John F. Kennedy International Airport on Saturday before going through security.
The couple had left from a rented house, carrying luggage. Strauss-Kahn didn't say where he was going, but French media have reported he was expected to board a plane to Paris on Saturday.
It would be the one-time French presidential contender's first return home since he was arrested in New York in May when a Guinean hotel maid accused him of trying to rape her.
Prosecutors dropped the sexual assault charges against him last week. She continues to press her claims in a lawsuit.
Strauss-Kahn denies the allegations.
