Woman charged with helping run rackets in Naples

(ANSA) - ROME, DEC 5 - Italian police on Monday made 20 arrests against a prominent clan in the Neapolitan Camorra mafia including the mother of a clan boss who is the son of the supreme leader of the family.
    Antonietta Virenti, 64, the mother of boss Michele Mazzarella , son of clan leader Vincenzo, was arrested on charges of helping run protection rackets in the working class Naples quarters of Forcella and Maddalena.
