A man punched Italian Premier Silvio Berlusconi in the face at a rally in Milan and the leader was whisked away in a car after falling to the ground, according to Italian news reports Sunday evening. State TV showed Berlusconi with blood on his lips as he was lifted to his feet by aides. A spokesman for Berlusconi says he did not immediately have any information about the incident, which happened after the premier delivered a long, rousing speech to his conservative supporters Sunday evening.
