Italy arrests alleged top mafia boss
Italian police have arrested an alleged top mafia boss who has been on the run for more than ten years. Gerlandino Messina was arrested in the Sicilian town of Favara.
A suspect in several murder cases, Messina is widely considered to be the Sicilian Mafia's second-in-command and as such has long been one of Italy's most wanted fugitives.
