Mafia drug raids: 26 arrested in US and Italy

Police in Italy and the US say they have arrested 26 people in a joint raid against a new mafia-operated drug trafficking route.

The operation foiled a plan to smuggle drugs and weapons from South America to the port of Gioia Tauro in Calabria, and targeted two mafia crime families.
