Following the violent crackdown on protests in Teheran, the Group of Eight leaders meeting next week in central Italy may discuss possible sanctions against Iran, Italian Premier Silvio Berlusconi said Monday. Berlusconi said the violence against demonstrators protesting what they called election fraud will be at the top of the agenda at the July 8-10 summit with President Barack Obama and other heads of the state from the G-8 industrialized countries. Asked at a news conference in Naples whether sanctions would be discussed, he said: "I believe we will go in that direction." Italy is Iran's No. 1 European trading partner, but Rome has been strong in its condemnation of the regime's crackdown, pushing last week's summit of G-8 foreign ministers to deplore Iran's postelection violence.
