The wife of Dominique Strauss-Kahn has left the New York apartment where the former IMF chief is under house arrest on sexual assault charges.

Anne Sinclair left the luxury high-rise in lower Manhattan near Wall Street on Sunday morning. She got into an SUV, destination unknown.

Sinclair has stood by her husband since his arrest last Sunday. The 62-year-old economist is accused of sexually assaulting a maid in his suite at Manhattan's Sofitel.

He was released from Rikers Island jail on Friday on $1 million bail plus $5 million bond.

A crowd of international reporters and onlookers stands around the clock outside the apartment building at 71 Broadway where Strauss-Kahn was brought after another luxury building rejected him, fearing a media frenzy.
