Italy's fragile coalition government was pushed into a full-fledged crisis after five ministers from former Premier Silvio Berlusconi's political party announced their resignations.The move drew the ire of Premier Enrico Letta, who accused Berlusconi of a "crazy" gesture aimed at covering up his personal affairs.The five-month-old government has teetered for weeks since the high court confirmed Berlusconi's tax fraud conviction.
