Naples, September 17 - Police identified nine
buried barrels of possibly toxic waste in the Camorra mafia's
heartland following tips from a State's witness.
The digs are slated to carry on all week, as is the ongoing
testing for toxic substances at the site in Casal di Principe,
the hometown of the Camorra's infamous Casalesi gang north of
Naples.
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 came from an unidentified tipster with mafia
links, police said.
