Berlusconi guests 'dressed as nuns'

Female guests at Silvio Berlusconi's "bunga bunga" parties dressed up like nuns in the Sister Act musical, then stripped to their underwear, according to the testimony of a model at his trial.

Berlusconi is accused of paying a 17-year-old Moroccan girl for sex, then using his influence as Italian premier to cover it up. He has denied the charges.

State TV quoted witness Imane Fadil as telling the Milan court that two young women at the party wore black tunics, crosses and white head coverings, danced like Sister Act characters, then stripped down to their underwear. Ms Fadil is also Moroccan.

At a different party, she told the court, another young woman donned a jersey and mask to dress up like Brazilian football star Ronaldinho.

Former Italian prime minister Berlusconi did not attend the hearing on Monday.
