In some lesser-known developments about Dominique Strauss-Kahn, the (now-former) head of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) who is accused sexually assaulting a maid at the Sofitel Hotel in New York, New York (Manhattan), his accuser has been living in a building exclusively for survivors of HIV or AIDS.
See this article in the Telegraph of the UK (United Kingdom), "Dominique Strauss-Kahn maid lives in apartment block for HIV sufferers: The hotel chambermaid who alleges she was sexually attacked by Dominique Strauss-Kahn lives in an apartment block used exclusively for people with HIV or Aids, it emerged on Wednesday."
