Berlusconi Will Sue Nouvel Observateur and El Pais (Update1)

By Caroline Binham

Aug. 29 (Bloomberg) -- Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi plans to sue the French weekly magazine Le Nouvel Observateur and Promotora de Informaciones SA's El Pais newspaper in Spain over coverage of his private life.

Berlusconi also has instructed a law firm in London to research whether any articles carried in the British press were libelous, Niccolo Ghedini, Berlusconi's lawyer, said in a telephone interview today. Italy's La Repubblica newspaper said yesterday that it was being sued for libel by Berlusconi.
