Dominique Strauss-Kahn, former head of the International Monetary Fund, waves as he leaves Roissy airport, north of Paris, France, Sunday, Sept. 4, 2011.

Dominique Strauss-Kahn was greeted with applause at the airport as the former International Monetary Fund chief arrived back in France. He then left in a private car and returned to his apartment, accompanied by his wife, Anne Sinclair. Strauss-Kahn was freed from house arrest in New York days ago after sexual assault charges against him were dropped. Before returning to France, Strauss-Kahn headed to Washington to visit the IMF and attend to personal matters.
