Italian police confirmed the arrest of two leading Mafia figures yesterday, one of whom was listed among the country's 30 most dangerous fugitives. Franco Li Bergolis, 32, a chief in the Mafia of the southern Italian region of Puglia, was caught by Italian police in his home town Monte Sant' Angelo, the Interior Ministry said. Li Bergolis was convicted in absentia in March 2009 for homicide and drug trafficking and sentenced to life in prison. Italian police also confirmed the arrest of Roberto Cima, 52, in France. Cima was wanted since his conviction by a Milan tribunal for a 1989 homicide.
