Teen posed naked for Berlusconi -- witness

Silvio Berlusconi, the former prime minister of Italy, allowed a teenage belly dancer to pose for pictures naked on his desk, according to a guest at his infamous "bunga bunga" parties who is expected to testify at his trial later this month.

Michelle Conceicao said she found the photographs of Karima El Mahroug, then aged 17, on her camera and they showed her "naked as Mother Nature intended", sprawled on the desk of the 75-year-old politician.

Mr Berlusconi has insisted nothing untoward happened at his parties. Miss Mahroug has also said that nothing happened between them.

The trial continues.
