Lawyers for ex-IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn said Sunday the woman who has accused him of attempted rape was trying to "inflame public opinion" after she went public for the first time.

"This conduct by lawyers is unprofessional and it violates fundamental rules of professional conduct for lawyers," Strauss-Kahn's lawyers said in a statement."Its obvious purpose is to inflame public opinion against a defendant in a pending criminal case."
