16th May 2011, Comments 0 comments

The International Monetary Fund has postponed until Monday its executive board meeting in the wake of the arrest in New York of managing director Dominique Strauss-Kahn.

"The tentatively scheduled informal briefing of the executive board has been postponed pending further developments in New York," IMF spokesman William Murray said in a statement late Sunday.

He did not offer any details.

Strauss-Kahn was arrested late Saturday and charged with a sexual assault and attempted rape on a chambermaid in the luxury Sofitel hotel in New York, near Times Square.

The 62-year-old IMF chief was expected to be arraigned before a New York judge later Sunday.
