Italians wary of return of Berlusconi

Ex-PM's announcement that he intends to run in elections next year raises fears of instability.

    Mario Monti, Italy's prime minister, has announced his intention to resign after the party of Silvio Berlusconi, the former prime minister, withdrew its support from the government.

    Germany says his decision to leave should not destabilise the eurozone, however, with an election looming in February and the possible return of Berlusconi to politics, should Italy be worried?
