French execs fired over prostitution case linked to DSK

LILLE, France - Two French construction firm executives have been dismissed over their alleged role in a prostitution ring that has been linked to former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn, the company's CEO said on Tuesday.

The affair started with the discovery earlier this year of a network that supplied prostitutes to clients of the luxury Carlton hotel in the northern city of Lille.

Eight people have been arrested, including several Carlton managers, businessmen and a local police commissioner, who are now under official inquiry on suspicion of organizing prostitution.

The case blew into a bigger affair when French media reported Strauss-Kahn's name had surfaced in text messages uncovered during the investigation.
