Italy's former PM Silvio Berlusconi started his community service on Thursday after having his prison sentence commuted to four-hours work a week at an elderly home, reports the BBC. Italy's justice system spared Berlusconi prison time because of his advanced age. He remains head of the centre-right party, Forza Italia.
