Maid identified as African immigrant

The hotel maid who accused the head of the IMF of sexual assault is a 32-year-old African immigrant who earns $22,000 (€15,500) a year.

The woman, who has not been named because of the sensitive nature of the allegations, was described as "hardworking" by the Sofitel hotel where Dominique Strauss-Kahn was staying.

"She's a good person, very nice, very friendly," another maid at the hotel said.

The woman told police she was asked to clean the $3,000-a-night (€2,116) suite. She then alleged that Mr Strauss-Kahn emerged naked from a bathroom and chased her down the hallway before sexually assaulting her.
