A woman and her two adult sons were shot to death in their home yesterday as Naples continued to be bloodied by turf warfare.

The shootings in an apartment on the outskirts of the city raised to 99 the number of killings blamed this year on warfare involving the Camorra crime syndicate.

Italy's government last month sent in hundreds of soldiers to try to quell the violence. Yesterday's murders, carried out apparently with silencer- equipped pistols only 50 yards away from a police station, fuelled calls for an even tougher crackdown. AP - Naples
