PARIS - One of Dominique Strauss-Kahn's France-based lawyers said on Sunday that it was key to avoid a media frenzy over the sex assault charges against the IMF chief and wait for clarity on whether the allegations are true.

"We must wait until things settle and see if it's true or a provocation," Leon Lef Foster told Reuters.

"We must be especially careful not to get into a media circus and we must wait until things are clear," he said, and said that it was important to remain calm.

The International Monetary Fund chief, who had been seen making a bid for France's 2012 presidential election, was arrested and charged with an alleged sexual assault on a hotel maid in New York.
