Former Italian Prime
Minister Silvio Berlusconi, about to begin a sentence for tax fraud,
provoked fresh outrage from his political opponents on Saturday by
suggesting that Germany did not acknowledge the existence of World War Two concentration camps.
Berlusconi provoked the latest in a long line of
controversies when he took another swipe at his old foe Martin Schulz,
the German president of the European parliament and the center-left
candidate to lead the EU Commission.
