Rome, April 14 (IANS/AKI) Sicilian police on Friday arrested convicted mafia boss Concetto Bonaccorsi, who was on the run for eight months, in the central Italian Tuscan region.

Police nabbed 57-year-old Bonaccorsi at a villa in the town of Massa e Cozzile. He had failed to return to Secondigliano jail in Naples last September after a three-day furlough for good behaviour.

Bonaccorsi, known as “u carateddu” has been sentenced to life in jail for murder, mafia association and drugs trafficking.

He was one of the heads of the ‘Carateddi’ paramilitary wing of the Sicilian mafia’s Cappello clan, whose power base is the province of Catania.
