Italy's secret services says Sicilian Mafia in struggle (ANSA) - Palermo, February 28 - The Mafia in Sicily is in the midst of a power struggle, according to a report issued Thursday by Italy's secret services.

Times seem to be hard for most Mafia bosses, says the report which highlights the "precariousness of the relationship between the components of the various (factions) of the Sicilian Mafia".

The provinces of Trapani and Palermo are especially disorganized, said the report, issued annually to Italy's parliament.

However, in Catania, mobsters are better organized.

In their report, the secret services also discussed the rising threat to Italy of anarchist groups.
