Three killings in Milan as mafia on move

THREE people linked to Milan's underworld have been murdered over the past week, shining a spotlight on the spread of organised crime from the south to the north of Italy.

The assassination of the mobster Pasquale Tatone (54) on Wednesday evening followed the murder of his brother Emanuele (52), whose body was found on Sunday along with that of his driver Paolo Simone.

Pasquale Tatone was thought to control the drugs trade in the Oggiaro district of the city.

All three were shot dead in what investigators believe to be gangland killings. In the most recent murder, Pasquale Tatone was shot three times by a man on a scooter as he left a pizzeria . (© Independent News Service)
