Italian officials say police have captured one of Sicily's top Mafia fugitives.
Domenico Raccuglia is considered the No. 2 member of the organized crime group Cosa Nostra, and is listed as one of Italy's 30 most dangerous fugitives.
Interior Minister Roberto Maroni hailed his arrest Sunday as "one of the hardest blows" delivered to the Sicilian Mafia in the last few years.
Police arrested Raccuglia in an apartment in a tiny town in western Sicily near Trapani, where investigators say they believed he had his stronghold.
The convicted mobster had been on the run for 15 years. Palermo Prosecutor Antonio Ingroia was quoted by the Italian news agency ANSA as describing Raccuglia as on the rise in Cosa Nostra.
