Riots break out in Rome as Berlusconi wins vote

ROME, Italy Riot police had to use tear gas to try to stop angry demonstrators from torching cars, smashing windows and clashing with police.

Inside parliament's lower house, tensions boiled over as lawmakers pushed and shoved each other, forcing a brief suspension in the voting.

Ultimately, Berlusconi survived the lower house's no-confidence motion by just three votes. He had secured a more comfortable victory in a confidence vote at the Senate earlier in the day.
