The yield on Italian 10-year debt skyrocketed overnight, going from roughly 6.7 percent yesterday to 7.3 percent. And that is with the ECB buying Italian bonds — in fact there has been active speculation that they are almost the only buyer of those bonds. This has effectively torpedoed the EFSF.

Berlusconi denied everything on his Facebook page: "The rumors of my resignation are groundless." Some in Berlusconi's party insisted that he had not lost a majority, but last week two deputies from his own party defected to another party.
