People gather during an anti-Berlusconi protest in front of the Pantheon in Rome, on Tuesday, April 5. On Tuesday, the lower house of parliament, which is controlled by Berlusconi's conservative allies, approved a motion asking Italy's Constitutional Court to rule on who should try the premier on trial on charges he paid for sex with an underage prostitute, then tried to use his influence to cover it up. In Rome, Berlusconi critics plan an all-night vigil against what they say is the premier's attack on democracy.
