Berlusconi in new Italy scandal

Opposition parties seek PM’s resignation after media reports linked him with 17-year-old Moroccan girl.

Italy’s opposition parties are once again demanding the resignation of Silvio Berlusconi, the prime minister, over reports of his alleged link with a 17-year-old Moroccan girl named Ruby.

She has allegedly told police that she had partied with the 74-year-old premier at his private villa, though she denied having sex with him.

Opposition parties say that Berlusconi has betrayed the office of prime minister. However, Berlusconi has dismissed the newspaper reports.

Al Jazeera’s Hazem Sika has the story on the latest scandal in Rome.
