ROME (Reuters) - Italy’s anti-establishment 5-Star Movement and the far-right League are close to an agreement over a cabinet team, two 5-Star sources said on Thursday as talks between the two parties continued.

The groups are locked in talks to try to form a coalition government and end three months of political deadlock following inconclusive March 4 elections.
