'Mixed reactions' to DSK release

The former head of the IMF, Dominique Strauss-Kahn, has been released from house arrest in New York, where he's been facing allegations of attempting to rape a hotel maid.

Prosecutors are said to have new doubts about the maid's credibility as a witness.

Former socialist minister Jack Lang considers what this will mean for the French socialist party at next year's presidential election.

And Elaine Sciolino, New York Times Paris correspondent, describes French reactions to his release.
