NEW YORK/WASHINGTON - Fallen IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn left jail on Friday and was expected to be whisked to a safe house in lower Manhattan where he will be kept under armed guard and electronic monitoring.

Strauss-Kahn, indicted for allegedly trying to rape a New York hotel maid last Saturday, was originally expected to be taken to an apartment on New York's wealthy Upper East Side.

The plan was changed when news of the location leaked.
