Dec 04, 2018 22:17 IST

Italian police have arrested the man said to be the new head of the Sicilian Mafia, along with his 45 associates. 80-year-old jeweller Settimo Mineo, who was reportedly elected Cosa Nostra godfather in May, was held during a raid in Palermo. Italian media describe him as the successor to Toto Riina, who died in jail a year ago.
