NEW YORK - (AP) - New tests have found that the DNA of the formerInternational Monetary Fund leader matches material found on theshirt of a hotel maid who says he attacked her.

Two people familiar with the investigation tell The AssociatedPress that the tests were returned recently. The peopleweren't authorized to speak publicly about the matter and spoke tothe AP on condition of anonymity.

The people say DNA found on the maid's shirt match to a sampleof Dominique Strauss-Kahn's DNA.

Strauss-Kahn attorney Benjamin Brafman declined to commentyesterday.

At a court hearing last week, Brafman told a judge that evidencefrom the incident wouldn't be consistent with a forcible encounter.

Strauss-Kahn faces charges including attempted rape and sexualabuse in the May 14th incident at New York's Sofitel Hotel.
