ITALY, US ARREST 26 IN ANTI-MAFIA RAIDS

0

ROME: Italian and United States officers arrested 26 people on Tuesday in a joint operation that exposed alleged drug trafficking links between New York’s Cosa Nostra Gambino family and the ‘Ndrangheta mafia in Italy. Eight of the people arrested are alleged members of the Gambinos—one of the “five families” that have traditionally controlled the mafia in New York. Other arrests were carried out in the Calabria region in southern Italy, the bastion of the ‘Ndrangheta mafia which plays a lynchpin role in the global cocaine trade.
