Berlusconi promises reforms for Italy

Italy's newly elected Prime Minister, Silvio Berlusconi, says he'll push through new economic reforms.

He's also pledging tough measures against crime, a rescue deal for Alitalia airlines and an end to the rubbish crisis in Naples.

It's the conservative leader's third term as prime minister and he says he'll announce his cabinet by the end of the week.

Berlusconi came to power as a result of a snap election called after January’s resignation of previous Prime Minister Romano Prodi, who lost a critical confidence vote in the Senate.
