An Italian mafia boss has been arrested in London after nearly two decades on the run, British police said on Thursday.
London's Metropolitan Police said Domenico Rancadore, 64, had been arrested on Wednesday on a European arrest warrant.
Considered an important member of the Sicilian mafia group Cosa Nostra, he has been wanted by Italian police for 19 years and is on Rome's list of most dangerous criminals.
He has an outstanding prison sentence of seven years in Italy for mafia-related activities, according to the arrest warrant.
