G8 countries call for end of violence

TRIESTE, Italy—Foreign ministers from Group of Eight countries meeting in Italy are calling for the immediate end of violence in Iran and are calling on Tehran authorities to seek a peaceful solution.

The officials gathering in Trieste have worked to smooth over differences among themselves and address Iran's violent crackdown on protesters following disputed elections.

Italian Foreign Minister Franco Frattini said Friday that "we are very worried over these events" and that "we have underlined the need that violence cease immediately."
