50 more from the boot

Italy has sent 50 more troops to Iraq, after losing 18 in a terrorist attack.

In Rome, 50 carabinieri paratroopers left central Italy to reinforce a contingent depleted and demoralized by Wednesday's blast at a base in the southern city of Nasiriyah.

President Bush phoned Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, one of his staunchest supporters, yesterday to discuss Iraq as Italians mourned their loss.
