IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn, locked up in a New York jail for alleged sexual assault, faced growing pressure as US treasury secretary Timothy Geithner said he should no longer lead the powerful financial institution.

"He's obviously not in the position to run the IMF," Geithner said at a New York conference.

Geithner's were the first remarks on the case from a top Obama administration official.
