Silvio Berlusconi has found himself in hot water, yet again. The Italian Prime Minister was officially indicated yesterday on charges of paying for sex with an under-aged prostitute and abusing the power of his office to cover it up. Berlusconi said he was told the girl was the granddaughter of then-Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak – and he was doing the world leader a favor when he tried to get her out of jail. We talk with Duncan Kennedy, BBC reporter in Rome, for the latest in the story.
