Former President of Italy Silvio Berlusconi Dies at 86
Silvio Berlusconi died this Monday at the age of 86 after a long illness. The former President of Italy had been suffering from leukemia for a year and died from a pulmonary problem. Only 2 days ago, his doctors gave a report that, despite his delicate health, did not presage what has happened. “President Silvio Berlusconi is currently admitted to the San Raffaele Hospital to undergo scheduled checks of his known hematological pathology. The advance, to today, of these controls responds to normal clinical criteria in medical practice and does not respond to any critical or alarming aspect”, the doctors assured last Friday.

He returned to the hospital last week after a period of intermittent hospitalizations due to the illness he suffered.
