    Italy is inching closer to a new government, and it is one that is set for a confrontation with both the European Union and hundreds of thousands of migrants and refugees.

    After weeks of negotiations, the Five Star Movement and right-wing League party are nearing a deal.

    Between them they want to break European spending limits on looking after unemployed Italians, loosen ties with the EU and deport undocumented migrants.
