World: Italy’s billionaire prime minister offers his homes to quake victims

  • Silvio Berlusconi is Italy’s second-richest man. Victims of the devastating Italiian earthquake, which killed hundreds and left thousands more without homes, will be getting some help from P.M. Silvio Berlusconi. “I will do what I can too, by offering some of my houses,” Berlusconi said at a state funeral for the more than 200 killed. 17,000 survivors are currently living in tents, so it’d be a bit of an upgrade for them. source
