Milan prosecutors request Berlusconi be indicted

Prosecutors in Milan said Friday they have requested that Italian Premier Silvio Berlusconi be indicted on charges of corruption. The premier is accused of ordering the payment of at least US$600,000 (about €500,000) to British lawyer David Mills, whose indictment also was being sough, in 1997 in exchange for the lawyer's false testimony in two trials against Berlusconi. Both men deny the allegations.
