Strauss-Kahn and accuser face judge

Dominique Strauss-Kahn and the woman who accuses him of trying to rape her have been ordered to appear before a judge to tell their version of the events, the Paris prosecutor's office has said.

Writer Tristane Banon says the former head of the International Monetary Fund attacked her while she was interviewing him in 2003.

Strauss-Kahn has called her story imaginary and has sued her for slander.

He was considered a top contender for France's forthcoming presidential elections before his May arrest in New York on charges he tried to rape a hotel maid. Those charges were later dropped.
