Former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn has been released from jail on bail. He has been sent to an unspecified temporary home in Lower Manhattan where he will be detained under armed guard. Strauss-Kahn is facing charges he tried to rape a hotel maid.

His release came on Friday after New York prosecutors told Supreme Court Judge Michael Obus that an initial location for Strauss-Kahn to be detained had fallen through. Obus earlier the same day received a 1 million dollar cash bail and 5 million insurance bond from Strauss-Kahn's lawyers.

Strauss-Kahn, who has spent the past four nights at New York's Rikers Island jail, has denied charges of a criminal sexual act, attempted rape, sexual abuse, unlawful imprisonment and forcible touching.
