Court denies Berlusconi bid to halt sex trial
A Milan court has rejected a bid by former Premier Silvio Berlusconi to halt his pay-for-sex trial because of Italy's general election campaign.


The judges deliberated for four hours before delivering their decision on Monday. They also decided that they didn't need to hear testimony from the Moroccan woman at the center of the case, Karima el-Mahroug. (AP)
