PARIS (AP) -- Former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn will have to defend himself in a French court on charges of aggravated pimping.

Judges investigating the case in the northern French city of Lille decided on Friday to go ahead with charges of aggravated pimping in a group -- rejecting prosecutors' calls for the case to be dropped on the grounds of lack of evidence.

Frederique Baulieu, one of Strauss-Kahn's lawyers, said her client committed no infraction.
