Italian police arrest top mafia fugitive
NAPLES | Wed Nov 17, 2010 11:50am EST
(Reuters) - Italian police arrested on Wednesday a mafia boss who had been on the run for 14 years and was one of Italy’s most wanted men, judicial sources said.
Antonio Iovine, a boss of the Camorra, the Naples version of the Sicilian mafia, was arrested by police and was being transferred to a safe location, the sources said.
Iovine, whose name was on the list of Italy's 30 most wanted mobsters, was considered a leader of the Camorra's infamous Casalesi clan.
His capture is the latest in a string of high-profile mafia arrests by Italian authorities in recent months.
