Prosecutors investigating the 1992 murder of the anti-Mafia judge Giovanni Falcone issued 19 warrants for the men suspected of ordering the killing, Reuter reports from Palermo.

The warrants were issued as Bruno Contrada, one of Italy's most senior police officers, went on trial in the Sicilian capital, Palermo, on charges of Mafia association. Prosecutors alleged the Sicilian Mafia's ruling council ordered Falcone's murder in May 1992.
