New role for Dominique Strauss-Kahn's wife

Anne Sinclair, the wife of the former head of the International Monetary Fund, Dominique Strauss-Kahn, has been named as the editor of the new French edition of The Huffington Post website.

Sinclair's prominence as a journalist was eclipsed by her husband last year, when he was forced to resign from the IMF amid accusations of sexually assaulting a chambermaid in a New York hotel.

An editor at Le Monde, Huffington's partner in the venture, questioned Sinclair's credentials, saying the defence she provided for her husband showed she had "lost her objectivity", according to L'Express magazine.
