Police are probing a suspected prostitution ring in France and neighbouring Belgium that has implicated police and other officials. They have questioned prostitutes who claim they had sex with Strauss-Kahn during 2010 and 2011 at a luxury hotel in Paris, a restaurant in the French capital and also in Washington, D.C. Strauss-Kahn lived in the U.S. capital while he was head of the IMF before resigning his position in May.
