Former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn spent his first night out of prison at a safe house in Manhattan. He is expected to stay at an apartment in the city's Financial District for a few days before moving to a more permanent location to await legal proceedings. His temporary housing was arranged by a private security company that is also keeping him under armed guard and electronic monitoring as part of the conditions of his bail. The cost of the house arrest is estimated at $200,000 a month. He will be allowed to leave his apartment for court appearances, meetings with his lawyers, medical appointments, and weekly religious observances.
