The law shields the prime minister and three other key figures from prosecution while in office. The Italian leader was defiant as he dismissed the Constitutional Court ruling, saying: The court is of the Left. I will carry on. These things do not bother me. He added: These things just charge me up. They charge up Italians. Viva Italia! Viva Berlusconi! Opposition MPs called for immediate elections. Two trials involving Mr Berlusconi can now resume. One is an appeal by David Mills, estranged husband of Olympics minister Tessa Jowell. Mills was sentenced to four and a half years in jail for accepting 350,000 from the Italian PM for giving favourable evidence in previous trials. The other case involves alleged financial irregularities in Mr Berlusconis Mediaset extensive television empire. 10deadinKabulsuicidetruckblast A TRUCK bomb killed up to 10 people and wounded more than 60 in the Afghan capital Kabul today.

Dad killed daughter for honour of family A 15-YEAR-OLD girl was murdered by her family after she fell in love with the wrong man, the Old Bailey heard today. The body of Tulay Goren is still missing 10 years after she disappeared from the north London family home. She allegedly became an honour killing victim for falling in love with Halil Unal because her Alevi Muslim family were angered that he was a Sunni. Jonathan Laidlaw QC, prosecuting, said: Her father Mehmet and his brothers shared responsibility for the restoration of honour. It is believed Tulay was killed, her body hidden in the garden and then moved. Mr Unal, then 30, survived an axe attack. Tulays father and uncles were arrested in 1999 but the charges were dropped until a cold case review was opened and her mother, Hanim, took the decision to give evidence against her husband. Mehmet Goren, 49, of Woodford Green, and his brothers Ali, 55, and Cuma, 42, both of Walthamstow, deny murdering Tulay and conspiring to murder Mr Unal. The case continues.
