February 11, 2001|Reuters

ROME — Italian police Saturday arrested 31 suspected Mafiosi on charges ranging from drug trafficking to bombings and murder.

The ANSA news agency said agents staged a dawn raid on the suspects at a headquarters in the mountains east of Naples.

"The suspects are some of the most dangerous operating in the province of Naples," an investigator said.

Those arrested, thought to be part of the Camorra clan operating in and around Naples, also allegedly worked their way into winning public works contracts, with companies controlled by the group helping in the construction of a local hospital, investigators said.
