Former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi faces another trial, after being charged with bribing witnesses to silence them over accusations he paid for sex with young women. In 2013, Mr Berlusconi was convicted of sex with an underage prostitute in what became known as the "bunga bunga" case. [...] The new charges stem from the previous case, when he was accused of having sex with Karima El Mahroug in 2010, when she was 17.
