ROME - Lebanon extradited to Italy on Friday a long-time political and business ally of former prime minister Silvio Berlusconi who fled to Beirut in April just before being found guilty of dealings with the Sicilian mafia.

Marcello Dell'Utri, 72, landed at Rome's Fiumicino airport on Friday morning accompanied by Interpol officials and was handed over to the Italian police, airport authorities said.

An Italian court has sentenced Dell'Utri, who comes from Sicily, to seven years in jail for acting as a go-between for the mafia and the Milan business elite, including Berlusconi's companies, from 1974 to 1992.
