Italian police raid reputed mob clan stronghold

The Associated Press

ROME, ITALY - Hundreds of police raided a small town in southern Italy on Thursday, burrowing through a secret tunnel and searching homes as they arrested suspected members of organized crime clans thought involved in a feud that killed six Italians in Germany on Aug. 15.

Most of the 32 people arrested were in San Luca, where the two rival clans of the 'Ndrangheta, the local version of the Sicilian Mafia, are based. Three suspects were found in an underground bunker, officials said.

Sky TG24 channel showed video of a police officer crawling through an opening in a wall, apparently part of a hideaway, and stepping into what appeared to be a wine cellar.
