Italian Mafia Boss Captured In France After Jail Break

Marco Raduano, a boss from one of most Italy’s most violent mafias, who escaped from a maximum-security prison last year, has been captured in France, authorities in both countries have said.

Raduano, described as “dangerous” on Europol’s list of Europe’s most wanted criminals, was detained in Bastia on the French island of Corsica.

He had been serving a 24-year prison sentence for membership of a criminal organization, drug trafficking, holding illegal weapons, and other crimes, according to Europol.

His escape was hugely embarrassing for Italian authorities.
