You’re with BBC World News with me, Nick Garrie. I have the headlines.
Italy’s parliament is due to hold a vote of confidence in the governing coalition; with an attempt to topple Prime Minister Enrico Letta seeming to falter. The vote was called after Silvio Berlusconi ordered ministers in his center-right People of Freedom party to leave the government but senior figures in his party look set to defy him.
The leader of Greece’s neo-Nazi Golden Dawn Party will appear in court later. Nikolaos Michaloliakos faces charges of murder, assault, and money laundering. He was arrested at the weekend together with four other MP’s.
President Obama is urging Republicans in the House of Representatives to let the government reopen to fulfill its legal duties. Many government services have been suspended; tourist attractions have been shut after Congress failed to agree a new budget.
Those are the latest headlines from the BBC. You’re up to date.
