Good afternoon Europe, here's our round-up of the news this morning, as it happened.

Italy: The country's PM-designate Sunday ended efforts to form a government after President Sergio Mattarella rejected his choice of economy minister.

UK: Could Northern Ireland follow Dublin's example and hold a referendum on relaxing their restrictive abortion laws? British PM Theresa May is facing calls from over 150 MPs, including politicians from her own party, give such a vote the green light.

France: A Malian immigrant's remarkable rescue of a four-year-old boy, in which he scaled a multi-storey residential block to reach him, granted the 22-year-old an invitation to Elysee Palace to meet the French President.

Colombia: Colombians went to the polls in the first presidential vote since the government signed a peace agreement with the Farc rebel group in 2016.
