Naples mayor suspects foul play in City of Science blaze (see related story) (ANSA) - Naples, March 5 - Mayor Luigi De Magistris said Tuesday that he suspected foul play was behind the massive blaze that destroyed much of Naples Città della Scienza (City of Science) complex.

"It seems to me that a criminal hand is behind the flames," De Magistris said. "Now we have to put all our trust in the magistrates for the most in-depth investigation possible".

Naples has a big crime problem and a major factor is the illegal activity of the Neapolitan mafia, the Camorra.
