How to parse Splunk XML response containing list of data items in python?

How can we extract the list of items from below code:

 

              <s:key name="read">
                <s:list>
                  <s:item>rest_poc</s:item>
                  <s:item>poc</s:item>

 

Required output should be list of items for key name "read". Example:

rest_proc

poc
