POLICE SAY TOP MOBSTERS BUSTED DURING A WAR COUNCIL

(ANSA) – Catania, October 9 – Nine top mobsters nabbed near Catania on Thursday were hatching plans against a rival family, Catania prosecutor Vincenzo D’Agata said Friday.

Busted in what some are calling the most important anti-mafia operation Catania has seen in 20 years, the nine bosses of Santapaola family were arrested while meeting at a country hideaway in eastern Sicily.

D’Agata said the meeting was ”extremely important” for the family, whose control of the area around Catania is being challenged by a neighboring clan.
