Former International Monetary Fund head Dominique Strauss-Kahn has reached a settlement with the New York hotel maid who accused him of attempting to rape her.
The announcement was made in New York by a judge who said the amount of money Mr Kahn will pay the maid, Naffisatou Diallo, will remain confidential.
Mr Strauss-Kahn was arrested in New York in May 2011 after Ms Diallo, 33, said he assaulted her in his hotel suite. Prosecutors later dropped charges amid concerns about her credibility.
The incident was widely seen as having ruined Mr Strauss-Kahn's chance of becoming the Socialist presidential candidate in France, the BBC reports.
