ITALIAN MAFIA HOMICIDES DOWN 43% FROM 2007 TO 2010

Italian mafia homicides, already in general decline for more than a decade, dropped 43 per cent over the period 2007 to 2010, according to the Small Arms Survey 2013. Analysts link the steep reduction to the mafia groups’ increasing interest in legal markets, where murder attracts law enforcement attention, hindering legitimate business operations.
