Probe sought over Berlusconi's praise of Mussolini
An Italian political candidate has asked prosecutors to investigate former Premier Silvio Berlusconi for allegedly defending fascism after the media mogul praised Benito Mussolini for doing "good" despite the dictator's anti-Jewish laws.


Gianfranco Mascia, who has led an anti-Berlusconi movement for decades, says he filed the complaint Monday with Rome courthouse officials, citing a 1952 law that forbids actions defending fascism. (AP)
