PThe drugs were seized in Italy and other European countries during the course of the year-long investigation. ‘Ndrangheta, based in the southern Calabria region, has replaced Sicily’s Cosa Nostra as Italy’s richest and most powerful mafia, thanks to its domination of the European cocaine trade. It has invested its drug profits in the legitimate economy of central and northern Italy./PIMG id=mediaViewer title=”” alt=”” src=”http://www.mineralmuseum.eu/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/wpid-trasp203.gif”ALL RIGHTS RESERVED
