MILAN — Italian prosecutors have requested that Premier Silvio Berlusconi stand trial over accusations he paid for sex with a 17-year-old girl and then used his influence to try to cover it up.

The prosecutors filed their request in Milan on Wednesday. They are seeking an immediate trial.

A judge must now decide whether to accept the prosecutors' request and indict the 74-year-old leader, or dismiss it.

Berlusconi has denied wrongdoing.
