Ex-IMF chief Dominique Strauss Kahn was indicted on all seven charges presented to a New York grand jury following an alleged sexual assault, a US prosecutor said Thursday.

Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance said the indictment included felony charges of attempted rape in the first degree and criminal sexual acts.

"These are extremely serious charges," Vance told reporters after a judge set bail at $1 million cash for the French politician while ordering him to remain under house arrest in a Manhattan apartment, with an armed guard.

Strauss-Kahn also had to put up a $5 million bond, surrender all travel documents and agree to wear an electronic ankle bracelet.
