Seven held in 2007 mob killing

From Times Wire Reports

Police arrested seven people in an investigation connected to a mob shooting in Germany that claimed the lives of six people last year.

The suspects were not directly connected with the Aug. 15, 2007, shooting in Duisburg, said Francesco Iacono of the Italian police. But they belong to feuding clans believed to be behind the shooting.

Iacono said some of the suspects were picked up in the southern region of Calabria, home to the 'Ndrangheta criminal gang, while others were arrested in cities as far away as Udine and Bologna in northern Italy.
