Palermo, July 25 - The health of Mafia kingpin
Bernardo Provenzano, who has been in a prison hospital since the
beginning of June, has taken a turn for the worse, doctors said
on Thursday.
According to medical reports the former boss is "alert
only when stimulated...has limited speech and altered states of
consciousness".
Arrested in 2006 after 43 years on the run, Provenzano has
been subjected to the so-called 41-bis treatment for Italy's
most dangerous criminals.
They can be kept in single-person cells in maximum-security
jails, almost entirely cut off from the outside world in order
to prevent further criminal activity.
The ex-Mafia chieftain, once nicknamed "The Bulldozer", is
serving life for various murders including ordering fatal bomb
attacks on anti-mafia prosecutors Giovanni Falcone and Paolo
Borsellino in 1992.
