Beppe Grillo snubs Bersani deal
Italian comedian-turned-politician Beppe Grillo, whose Five-Star Movement (M5S) defied expectations to come third in last weekend's elections, has ruled out a coalition with the centre-left.
Pier Luigi Bersani's Democratic Party (PD) won a majority in the Chamber of Deputies but fell short in the Senate.
Mr Grillo told the BBC's Chris Morris he expected Mr Bersani to agree a deal with Silvio Berlusconi's People of Freedom (PdL).
