Fake cop murders man in Rome (ANSA) - Rome, January 23 - A man disguised as a policeman murdered a criminal in Rome Thursday in the latest of a string of gangland killings in the capital.

The murderer made off on a scooter after riddling the 33-year-old with bullets on his doorstep, police said.

Murders in drug turf wars, including three in one day last May, have spurred fears of a return to the bloody years of the infamous 1970s Magliana Gang.
