NEW YORK — A prosecutor in New York says a grand jury has indicted former IMF leader Dominique Strauss-Kahn in connection with an alleged attack on a hotel maid.

Strauss-Kahn was appearing before a judge Thursday in a bid for freedom while he awaited trial.

The former head of the International Monetary Fund arrived in the courtroom Thursday afternoon wearing a gray suit.

He has been behind bars since Saturday after he was accused of trying to rape a maid at a Manhattan hotel.
