“Italian police arrested seven people Friday in an investigation connected to a mob shooting in Germany that claimed the lives of six people last year, officials said….
“The clans are part of the ‘ndrangheta organized crime syndicate, which is based in the southern Italian region of Calabria and is now considered by many analysts to be more powerful than the Sicilian Mafia.
“…The slayings of the six Italians at a restaurant in downtown Duisburg — seen as the latest bloody chapter in the feud — drew attention to the ‘ndrangheta. Investigators say the ‘ndrangheta has eclipsed the Sicilian Mafia largely because of its control of Europe’s lucrative cocaine market.”
