Strauss-Kahn hotel encounter gets theatre treatment

As former International Monetary Fund chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn signs a settlement with hotel maid Nafissatou Diallo, a play has opened in Paris which apparently re-enacts their encounter last year.

Mr Strauss-Kahn was held in New York in May 2011 after Nafissatou Diallo said he assaulted her in his hotel suite.

Prosecutors later dropped charges.

Hugh Schofield has been to see the play, called Suite 2806, and reports from Paris.
