Silvio Berlusconi: Prosecutors to seek trial over ‘sex’

Prosecutors in Italy say they will formally ask for PM Silvio Berlus­coni to be tried for alleged sex with an underage prostitute and abuse of power. The Milan chief prosecutor said a request for a fast-track trial would be submitted to a court on Wednesday. Mr. Berlusconi is alleged to have paid for sex with a 17-year-old girl and then interve­ned to get her released from custody in a separate case. Mr. Berlus­coni denies the sex allegations, insisting they are politically motivated.
