Dominique Strauss-Kahn Arrested on Allegations of Sexual Assault

The chief of the International Monetary Fund was ordered jailed without bail Monday on charges of trying to rape a maid, and prosecutors said they were investigating at least one other similar allegation against Dominique Strauss-Kahn.

The head of the powerful International Monetary Fund arrived Monday at New York's Rikers Island jail complex, dispatched there after a judge denied him bail for allegedly chasing and sexually assaulting a hotel employee.
