Strauss-Kahn back home, faces frosty welcome
http://www.reuters.com/article/2011/09/04/us-strausskah...

(Reuters) - Dominique Strauss-Kahn, his presidential hopes shattered by a sex assault scandal that rocked his homeland, returned on Sunday to France facing a frosty public reception and unease among his political allies.

The former IMF chief arrived at Paris's Roissy Charles de Gaulle airport at about 7 a.m. (0500 GMT) with his wife Anne Sinclair. Police escorts whisked the couple through the terminal, past waiting media, and into a car.

Dressed in a suit and smiling, Strauss-Kahn arrived at his apartment in the luxurious Place des Vosges square in central Paris an hour later. He waved, but made no comment as he pushed through a sea of flashing media cameras.

"I am thinking about his joy, and that of Anne Sinclair, to be back here -- that's already a lot," Jack Lang, a left-wing former culture and education minister and a neighbor of the couple, told reporters in the Place des Vosges.
