About 200 members of one of Italy’s most infamous mafia groups have been arrested in an operation in Italy and Germany.
A statement from the para-military Carabinieri police said the operation had dismantled a major clan of the ‘Ndrangheta organised crime group, which is based in the southern Calabria region.
Police in Germany and Italy said the clans had infiltrated businesses in both countries, particularly those involved in wine, food, garbage collection and funeral services.
The statement said a number of public officials were suspected of corruption, without specifying if they were in Italy or both countries.
About $59 million in assets were seized.
