French police have questioned former International Monetary Fund chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn about an alleged rape attempt in Paris.

Police officials spoke with Strauss-Kahn for about three hours Monday about allegations by a French journalist that he tried to rape her in 2003.

Strauss-Kahn returned home to France earlier this month after separate sexual assault charges against him were dropped in the United States.

Strauss-Kahn resigned as the IMF's managing director in May after he was arrested at John F. Kennedy International airport and charged with the sexual assault and attempted rape of a hotel maid in New York City.

U.S. prosecutors dropped the case, saying they did not trust the accuser, Guinean immigrant Nafissatou Diallo.

Strauss-Kahn has denied wrongdoing in both cases.
