FILE - In this Dec. 4, 2013 file photo Silvio Berlusconi attends the launch of a book "Sale, zucchero e caffe'" (Salt, Sugar and Coffee) by journalist Bruno Vespa, in Rome. A Milan court Tuesday, April 14, 2014 has ruled that Silvio Berlusconi will perform a year of community service for his tax fraud conviction at a center for the elderly. The assignment curtails Berlusconi's ability to participate in the upcoming European election campaign , a point of contention among his political allies. The 77-year-old, three-time former premier cannot run due to the conviction, the first against him ever confirmed by Italy's high court, but remains a political force as head of Forza Italia.

FILE - In this Wednesday, April 9, 2014 file photo, detained Somali women sit inside a makeshift cell before being fingerprinted and screened at the Kasarani sports stadium, Nairobi, Kenya. Kenya deported 91 more Somali nationals to Mogadishu on Thursday, April 17, 2014, the second wave of forced deportations that UNHCR warned could be endangering Somalis in need of protection from militants. But it is because of the steady drumbeat of terror attacks blamed on al-Shabab and its sympathizers that Kenya is now carrying out a massive security operation that threatens to open the country’s ethnic fault lines. Police say they are not targeting Somalis but instead are hunting terrorism suspects and illegal aliens. But rights groups say Somalis are bearing the brunt of police actions, including monetary shakedowns and physical and sexual abuses. Most Kenyans applaud the operation. (AP Photo/Khalil Senosi, File)
