Mafia massacre leader jailed for life
Tuesday 12 July 2011
The leader of a 2007 massacre of six people in Duisburg, Germany, that shed international light on the 'ndrangheta organised crime syndicate, has been jailed for life.
Giovanni Strangio was one of eight people convicted today in Calabria, southern Italy, for their roles in the violent mob feud that culminated with the Duisburg killings.
Six Italian men were gunned down on August 15, 2007, as they left a birthday party at an Italian restaurant in the German city.
Prosecutors said the massacre was part of a long-running feud between two clans of the 'ndrangheta, based in Calabria.
The 'ndrangheta is today considered more powerful than the Sicilian Mafia.
