Dominique Strauss-Kahn Hotel Surveillance Tape Airs on French TV

Jim Spellman/Wire Image(PARIS) -- French television has aired surveillance footage from the New York City hotel where former International Monetary Fund chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn allegedly tried to sexually attack a maid.

Video from hotel security cameras show Strauss-Kahn leaving the Sofitel Hotel moments after he's alleged to have attempted to rape a maid.  Nafissatou Diallo is seen calling hotel security personnel, who then call New York City police.

Prosecutors dropped the criminal charges after they became unsure of Diallo's credibility.  But her attorneys say the video is "further proof" that Diallo is telling the truth.
