Arrests made in mafia-linked extorsion racket probes

(ANSA) - Rome, July 23 - Five people were arrested in Calabria on Tuesday for alleged links with a local 'Ndrangheta mafia clan. The arrests follow investigations into an extortion racket targeting companies working on the Salerno-Reggio Calabria motorway upgrade. The probe initially led to the arrest of 12 people in May and six people earlier this month. All five are being held on suspicion of extorsion, contract rigging and violence.
