    ROME — Italian Premier Silvio Berlusconi was punched in the face at the end of a rally on Sunday by a man holding a small statue in his hand, leaving the 73-year-old media mogul with a bloodied mouth and looking stunned, police said.

    The 42-year-old man accused of attacking Berlusconi in Milan as he signed autographs was immediately taken into custody.

    TV showed the leader with blood under his nose, on his mouth and under one eye being lifted to his feet by aides after the attack. Berlusconi was hustled into the back of a car, but he immediately got out, apparently in an effort to show he was not badly injured.

    After looking out into the crowd, the premier, without saying a word, was pulled back into the vehicle.
