Alleged top mobster arrested from bunker

ROME, Italy Police in Reggio Calabria say 46-year-old Antonio Pelle was picked up early Thursday from a bunker in Ardore Marina in southern Italy. He has been on the run since 2007 and was wanted on charges of Mafia association.

Pelle's family was involved in a feud that led to the Aug. 15, 2007 killing of six Italians outside a restaurant in Duisburg, Germany.

The feud between two rival families drew international attention to the 'ndrangheta, a crime syndicate based in the southern region of Calabria. Some investigators say the 'ndrangheta is now more powerful than the Sicilian Mafia.
