Italy's premier resigns after sacking by own party
Democratic Party secretary Matteo Renzi arrives to speak at a party leadership meeting to decide whether to yank support from Letta's fragile coalition government, accusing the premier of failing to make progress on key financial reforms, in Rome Thursday, Feb. 13, 2014. Italian Premier Enrico Letta faces a new challenge to his leadership Thursday as the head of his own party tried to orchestrate a power grab. Renzi, 39, has been critical of Letta since December, when Renzi was voted head of their Democratic Party. If successful, Renzi could be tapped to form a new government.
