VTV.vn - About 200 members of one of Italy's most infamous mafia groups were arrested, in an operation in Italy and Germany.

A statement from the para-military Carabinieri police said the operation had dismantled a major clan of the 'Ndrangheta organised crime group, which is based in the southern Calabria region. Italian police said the operation was carried out jointly with police in Germany.

They said the clans of the Farao and Marincola families had infiltrated businesses in both countries, particularly those involved in wine, food, garbage collection and funeral services. A number of public officials were suspected of corruption, the statement said, without specifying if they were in Italy or both countries. About 59.79 million USD in assets was seized.
