Italy, U.S. Arrest 320 in Mafia Raid

Italian police arrested 320 people in raids against the Calabrian mafia on Tuesday—a massive operation that included arrests in the United States, says the Associated Press. Known as ‘Ndrangheta, the Calabrian mafia is much less known than its Sicilian counterpart, the Cosa Nostra. While it is centered in the poor Italian region of Calabria, it is a major player in the international drug trade. Charges against the arrested include murder and money laundering, though the specific charges against the U.S. individuals are unknown.
