Italy Probes Mob Link to Sunken Ships

Thursday, September 17, 2009

According to a Sept. 17 report from CNN, Italian authorities are investigating dozens of sunken ships, possibly containing toxic waste, that may have been submerged by a local crime syndicate. As many as 32 shipwrecks with illicit and highly toxic cargo could be lying on the seabed and polluting the Mediterranean Sea, Italian authorities said. Divers found one ship last week just where a mob informant had said it would be, 15 miles off the coast of Cetraro, a southern Italian town in northern Calabria along the Mediterranean Sea.
