IMF postpones board meeting on Strauss-Kahn arrest
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.
