Head Of Italian Police Force Says Mafia Is 'World Leader' In Drug Smuggling

A piece in the Australian reports that the head of the Italian police claims that Italian organized crime is the world leader in drug trafficking.

THE Ndrangheta, the branch of the Italian mafia rooted in the region of Calabria, is the world's leader in drug smuggling, the head of Italy's police force, Antonio Manganelli, says. 
In recent years, a string of police operations in northern Italy and the 2007 execution-style slayings of six suspected clan affiliates in Duisburg, Germany, have exposed the extent to which the Ndrangheta has expanded beyond its Calabrian base.

It is "today perhaps the strongest, the most present (organised crime force) in the field of drugs, I can confirm that," Manganelli said during a press conference in Rome with Interpol Secretary General Ronald Noble.
