China -Italy

BEIJING, China (AP) -- China has expressed "dissatisfaction" over comments by Italy's Premier Silvio Berlusconi that Chinese communists boiled babies for fertilizer.

Berlusconi said Sunday that according to "The Black Book of Communism ... in Mao's China, the communists didn't eat babies, but they boiled them to fertilize the fields."

"The Black Book of Communism" is an 846-page history of communism by six academics that was published in 1997. It concluded that communism -- through deportations and famine, labor camps and executions -- killed at least 85 million people in the Soviet Union, China, Cambodia and elsewhere.CNN March 29, 2006
