A vast antimafia operation was carried out in the early hours of the day in the Sicilian city of Catania.
Hundreds of police officers, including members of special corps and investigative units, were involved in a significant operation targeted against the renowned clan Cappello-Bonaccorsi.
52 persons were arrested, including a number of renowned Mafia bosses, their wives and children.
The operation, nicknamed ‘Camaleonte’ also saw a significant amount of assets being seized by the authorities.
Local portal ilsicilia.it said that this operation has “decimated” the Cappello clan, which is one of the strongest Mafia groups on the island and is involved in a wide range of illicit activities in Sicily with links to other Southern Italian regions.
