Rome- Italian  police on Monday arrested 5o suspects  in a major mafia  crackdown involving  two high-powered clans of the Calabria-based ‘Ndrangheta crime syndicate, reports Ansa news

The suspects face  racketeering and international  drug trafficking charges aggravated by mafia involvement,  police  said

The two  clans allegedly laundered  mafia racket money  through a Dutch flower import-export company, investigators said.

The crime syndicates were named as the Commisso clan operating out of the town of Siderno in Reggio Calabria province with affiliates in Canada and the Netherlands, and the Coluccio clan out of Marina di Gioiosa Jonica.
