    Italy police bust mafia bread racket

    NAPLES, Italy (Reuters) - Naples police say they have broken up a mob protection racket focused on local bakeries and flour makers.

    Police said on Saturday they had arrested 14 people in the swoop, called "00" after Italy's most famous type of bread and pasta flour.

    Those caught were all members of the Naples mafia, the Camorra, whose mob violence has gripped the Mediterranean port city and claimed more than two dozen lives since October.

    Italy's interior ministry on Friday said 181 people had been arrested in the past three months in a crackdown on the Camorra whose turf warfare now overshadows that of the Sicilian mafia.
