Italian Premier Silivio Berlusconi and media tycoon lost half a litre of blood after being hit in the face with a plaster souvenir of a replica of Milan’s famously jagged cathedral, the Duomo during an attack on him at a rally in Milan on 13th Dec (Sunday night). The Italy’s billionaire leader suffered a fractured nose and two broken teeth which took place as he mingled with the crowd in the city. He was cut under one eye and his top lip was split in two places by an attacker with a long history of mental illness.
The attack occurred at a time when Mr. Berlusconi, one of Italy’s wealthiest men, is embroiled in a sex scandal, a divorce case with his wife and public protests demanding his resignation.
