DSK rape investigation dropped

French public prosecutors have shelved an investigation into allegations that disgraced former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn, a man once tipped to become president of France, had engaged in group rape. In a statement yesterday, the prosecution service said it acted after a young woman retracted an allegation against the 63-year-old, who is also fighting wider accusations in France and a civil case in the United States.
