NewsChannel 10

Pressure is mounting on Dominique Strauss-Kahn to step down as head of the International Monetary Fund .

The Austrian Finance Minister is calling on him to consider his position.

Strauss-Kahn is in a New York jail following his arrest on Saturday for the attempted rape of a hotel maid.

He was arrested after boarding a plane, prompting the judge to say that Strauss-Kahn was a flight risk.

He faces seven charges and could be sentenced to up to 25 years in prison.

Strauss-Kahn denies the charges.

His next hearing is Friday.
