Six held over Berlusconi accountant hostage taking
Being a high-profile accountant appears to be a dangerous business - especially when you're working for "bunga-bunga" Berlusconi.
The former Italian prime minister's accountant Giuseppe Spinelli and his wife were held hostage at their home for 11 hours last month, while intruders tried to extort money.
Six people were arrested yesterday for the crime, for which they reportedly demanded £28m in exchange for documents they claimed could help Berlusconi's case.
In October, Berlusconi was sentenced to a year in jail over £200m tax fraud. However, he is unlikely to face this sentence for several years.
