A man identified by the Italian Carabinieri (paramilitary police) as Domenico Oppedisano, considered the top boss of the powerful 'ndrangheta crime organization, rides in a Carabinieri car after being arrested in Reggio Calabria in southern Italy on Tuesday, July 13, 2010, following one of the biggest operations ever against the 'ndrangheta crime organization, in which 300 people were arrested, including top bosses, and million of dollars in property seized. The pre-dawn raids Tuesday involved some 3,000 police across the country. Charges include murder, extortion, arms and drug trafficking, and criminal association. Investigators described the operation as one of biggest blows ever to an organization that today is considered more powerful than the Sicilian Mafia. (AP Photo/Adriana Sapone)
