Naples, September 17 - Police north of Naples
responded to a tip to dig up suspected toxic waste in the
Camorra mafia's heartland on Tuesday.
Digging is expected to last throughout the week, with
ongoing testing for toxic substances at the site in Casal di
Principe, the hometown of the Camorra's infamous Casalesi gang.
The Casalesis' wrongdoing, which has long included illegal
waste-disposal, was exposed in great detail in Roberto Saviano's
best-selling 2007 book Gomorrah, later turned into an
award-winning film.
Saviano has since lived under around-the-clock police
protection after death threats.
Tuesday's tip reportedly came from an unidentified State's
witness with mafia links.
So far the dig has reached a depth of six meters.
Digging is planned to stop after 12 meters.
