ROME (Reuters) - Italian Prime minister Mario Monti, French President Francois Hollande, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and British Prime Minister David Cameron will hold a video conference on Thursday ahead of this weekend's G-8, an Italian government source said on Wednesday.

The source said the conversation would give the four European leaders a chance to prepare for this weekend's summit at Camp David and well as to discuss European economic issues.
