After a three-month legal battle in the US, Dominique Strauss-Kahn returns to France.

The former IMF chief and his wife arrived at Charles de Gaulle airport surrounded by a large security detail.

Dozens of TV crews followed him to his central Paris home.

The arrest of the once likely presidential candidate on charges he raped a hotel maid shocked the nation.

A New York court dropped the case after prosecutors told the judge the maid had lied.

But Strauss-Kahn's reputation suffered as details about his private life became public.

He also still faces a civil case in New York and an accusation of attempted rape by a female journalist in France.
