French police have questioned former IMF boss Dominique Strauss-Kahn (in pic) for three hours over claims he tried to rape a writer during a 2003 interview. The interrogation was the latest chapter in Strauss-Kahn's judicial saga, which saw him cleared of attempted rape and other charges in a separate case brought by a New York hotel maid.
Writer Tristane Banon accuses him of attacking her during a 2003 interview for a book she was writing.
She claims Strauss-Kahn grabbed her hand and arm before the two fell to the floor of his apartment and fought for several minutes, with the politician trying to open her jeans and bra and putting his fingers in her mouth and underwear.
Strauss-Kahn's lawyers have called the incident "imaginary."
