Italian Prime Minister Renzi talks during a joint news conference with European Commission President Barroso at the end of a meeting at Villa Madama in RomeBy Gavin Jones and Giuseppe Fonte ROME (Reuters) - Carlo Cottarelli left a high-level job at the International Monetary Fund last year to help the Italian government cut high public spending. Most of the cuts he suggested in a 72-page review of Italy's public administration – an unpublished tome seen by Reuters that picks apart services ranging from disability benefits to policing - appear to have been ignored by Matteo Renzi's government. The hurdles facing Cottarelli's mission – politically influential lobbies and an inefficient bureaucracy – are the same as those that have dragged Italy’s economy to a virtual standstill for the past 20 years.

Armed Shi'ite volunteers from brigades loyal to radical cleric al-Sadr, take their positions during a military advance in areas on the outskirts of SamarraBy Ahmed Rasheed and Maggie Fick BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Iraq's parliament failed on Sunday to break a political deadlock that is holding up the formation of a new government to tackle an Islamist-led insurgency raging less than 50 miles (80 km) from Baghdad. After a brief session, parliamentary officials put off until Tuesday efforts to reach agreement between Shi'ite, Sunni and Kurdish politicians on the posts of prime minister, president and parliamentary speaker. Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki, whose State of Law coalition is the largest individual list in parliament, is seeking a third term but faces opposition from Sunnis and Kurds who say he has ruled for the Shi'ite majority at the expense of minority communities.
