Strauss-Kahn draws protests at Cambridge University

Former International Monetary Fund chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn was met by a crowd of protesters angry over his speaking engagement at Britain's Cambridge University on Friday.

The BBC reported Strauss-Kahn arrived to jeers at the Cambridge Union Society, where about 150 protesters – holding banners and shouting "no more violence, no more rape" – faced off with police.

Strauss-Kahn delivered a speech on globalization and the Eurozone to a select group of students reported Reuters.

He was bundled into the back of a police car to escape protesters following his speech.

The BBC reported two people were arrested. The visit was opposed by those angry over his recent sexual assault charges.

Strauss-Kahn was charged with raping a chambermaid in a New York City hotel last year, but those charges were later dropped.

The society said Strauss-Kahn had a right to "free speech." Strauss-Kahn has maintained his innocence.

More recently, the former IMF head was taken into questioning regarding an alleged prostitution ring in France that organized sex parties at luxury hotels in Lille. It has come to be known as "the Carlton affair," after the name of the hotel where clients were apparently supplied with prostitutes.
