Italy's Berlusconi Indicted

The prime minister of Italy is going on trial for a sex scandal.

An Italian judge has ordered Premier Silvio Berlusconi to stand trial on charges he paid for sex with a 17-year-old girl and then tried to cover it up.

The indictment has just come down. The trial is set to begin April 6.

The scandal has the country in an uproar. Women across Italy held demonstrations this weekend, demanding Berlusconi step down.
