Posted 2/20/2012 2:53 PM ET
PARIS (AP) — Former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn will be questioned Tuesday by French police investigating a suspected hotel prostitution ring.

Police in the northern French city of Lille are probing a suspected prostitution ring in France and neighboring Belgium implicating police and other officials.

Police have questioned prostitutes who said 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 DC. Strauss-Kahn lived in the U.S. capital while he was head of the International Monetary Fund before resigning his IMF position in May.

Two men with ties to Strauss-Kahn have been put under preliminary investigation in France on charges including organizing a prostitution ring and misuse of corporate funds.
