Mob boss known as 'scarface' nabbed in Italy

Italian police have arrested a mob boss and seized (EURO)600 million ($860 million) in assets in an operation that authorities say dismantled a powerful Camorra clan near Naples.
Authorities say Feliciano Mallardo, nicknamed "o sfregiato" ("scarface"), was the head of the Giugliano clan, a group within the Camorra crime syndicate.
He was arrested Tuesday as part of a vast police operation between Naples and towns south of Rome.
Justice Minister Angelino Alfano said the operation has "effectively destroyed the Giugliano clan."
The ANSA news agency says assets seized include almost two dozen companies working in coffee production, construction, gambling and other sectors, luxury cars, bank accounts and real estate.
