Reality TV show shocks Italy

Mother of missing girl being told on live TV that her daughter was likely dead triggers outrage.

    There's been shock and anger in Italy - where a TV programme focussing on missing persons has been making the news. 

    It centres on the case of Sarah Scazzi, a 15-year-old girl who had been missing for two months.

    The show decided to tell her mother, live on air, that her daughter was most likely dead. And that her own brother-in-law would be charged with the murder.
