Three things you need to know today.
Yellowstone spill: Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer will get a close-up look Tuesday at damage done to the Yellowstone River when an ExxonMobil pipeline ruptured last week and leaked tens of thousands of gallons of oil into the river, CNN affiliate KTVQ reports.
ExxonMobil reported Monday night that more than 280 people have converged on the area near Billings to clean up the spill, including workers from the Texas-based oil company and the Clean Harbors environmental firm.
But ExxonMobil officials told the Billings Gazette that workers have yet to reach the site of the rupture and determine its exact nature.
Historically high water levels and rapid currents have made things difficult. On Saturday, for instance, levels near Billings reached their peak for the season at 13.95 feet, nearly a foot above flood stage, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.
‚ÄúIt‚Äôs not a safe place to be right now,‚ÄĚ ExxonMobil spokesman Alan Jeffers told the Billings newspaper.
The rupture occurred on a pipeline that brings oil from Wyoming to a refinery in Billings, the Gazette reported.
More trouble for former IMF chief: A lawyer for French writer Tristane Banon said he will file a criminal complaint Tuesday against former International Monetary Fund head Dominique Strauss-Kahn over an alleged attempted rape eight years ago.
The development comes days after charges against Strauss-Kahn in New York appeared to be on shaky ground.
In anticipation of the new claims, a Strauss-Kahn lawyer in France said he had filed a counterclaim against Banon for "false declarations" after the 32-year-old journalist and writer alleged the ex-IMF chief assaulted her.
The filing by Strauss-Kahn's lawyer was announced shortly after Banon's lawyer, David Koubbi, said he will file the criminal complaint Tuesday with prosecutors, who will determine whether there is enough evidence to file charges.
Missing student case: An autopsy Tuesday may shed some light on the case of missing Indiana University student Lauren Spierer.
The autopsy will be conducted on a decomposing female body found in a creek Monday north of Indianapolis, CNN affiliates reported.
Bloomington police have been searching for Spierer, 20, since June 2, when she was last seen leaving a sports bar in the city after a night out with friends.
