More Rape Allegations Against DSK
Via the BBC: New rape claim in Strauss-Kahn inquiry in France
The magistrates in Lille are already investigating Mr Strauss-Kahn over his suspected role in a prostitution ring.
A Belgian prostitute has alleged that "DSK" and three of his associates gang-raped her in Washington DC in December 2010, French media report.
Prosecutors are now considering whether to expand the current investigation.
A second Belgian prostitute has partially confirmed the witness statement alleging gang rape in Washington, but neither has sought to press charges.
In March of this year, Mr Strauss-Kahn was also placed under formal investigation in France over alleged involvement in a prostitution ring.
He has admitted attending parties where the authorities believe prostitutes were provided by a gang, but denies knowing that they were prostitutes.
And, of course, DSK was, at one point, the man considered quite likely to be set for a run-off victory this weekend against Sarkozy.
