Matteo Messina Denaro: Italian mafia boss arrested in Sicily

Italian police have arrested the country’s most wanted mafia boss, who had been on the run for 30 years. Prosecutors say Matteo Messina Denaro is a boss of Sicily’s Cosa Nostra mafia. Police on Monday morning swooped in on a private hospital in the Sicilian capital Palermo, where the 60-year-old was receiving treatment for an undisclosed medical condition, to make the arrest. Messina Denaro has been sentenced in absentia to a life term for his role in the 1992 murders of anti-mafia prosecutors Giovanni Falcone and Paolo Borsellino. He also faces a life sentence for his involvement in bomb attacks in Florence, Rome and Milan the following year, which killed 10 people. Al Jazeera’s Andrew Simmons reports.
