Top-less woman activist targets ex-Italian PM

Italy is on course for a hung parliament after voters backed right-wing and populist parties, vote projections based on partial results suggest.

Ex-PM Silvio Berlusconi's right-wing coalition looks set to win the most seats in the lower house of parliament.

It is tipped to get 248-268 seats, below the 316 needed for a majority.

Forming a government may now take weeks of negotiation and coalition-building.

Alternatively, fresh elections could be held in a bid to produce a more decisive result - though there is no guarantee that would happen.

Meanwhile, the ex-Italian PM encountered with an unexpected stranger at the polling booth.

A woman, who had the words 'Berlusconi, you've expired' written in black marker on her chest, jumped onto the table at the Milan polling station as Berlusconi was voting.

Photographers in the room jostled for position amid the chaos while Berlusconi, 81, was escorted out. 

It is not the first time Berlusconi has been targeted by Femen activists - he was also jumped at a polling station in Milan five years ago, that time by three women.
