Former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn is to face trial on pimping charges, French prosecutors say.
Investigating magistrates have decided he should be tried in connection with an alleged prostitution ring at a hotel in Lille.
The former presidential hopeful has admitted attending sex parties there, but says he did not know that some of the women were paid prostitutes.
The case is the last of the sex-related allegations faced by Mr Strauss-Kahn.
A series of lurid claims have been made about the high profile French figure since he was arrested in New York in May 2011 after a hotel maid said he had tried to rape her. . .
