Mafia junior

A boy of nine suspected of being linked with the Naples Mafia led police on a wild car chase this weekend before being arrested, AFP reports from Naples. Police said two officers spotted the boy as he was driving in the region of Terre Del Greco, barely visible through the car's windscreen. When they finally blocked his car, the officers found guns, drugs and stolen jewellery.
