Berlusconi hit in face by cathedral model

December 13, 2009

He’s in the news again. And, again, in a way he’d rather not.

Last week it was a mass demonstration. This time it’s a lone assailant, said to be mentally unstable so it could have been a whole lot worse if he’d had a real weapon.

“Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi of Italy is recovering in hospital after an assault left his face covered in blood following a rally in Milan.

He suffered two broken teeth, a minor nose fracture and cuts to his lip after being struck with an object said to be a souvenir of the city’s cathedral.

An Italian man said to have a history of mental problems has been arrested.”
