18 arrests as Palermo Mafia clan hit

Including son of slain interim Porta Nuova Clan leader

(ANSA) - ROME, JUL 6 - Italian police on Wednesday made 18 arrests as they hit a prominent Palermo-based clan in the Sicilian Mafia.
    Among those arrested in the Porta Nuova Clan was Salvatore Incontrera, son of Giuseppe, the interim clan leader murdered in a hit in Palermo last Thursday.
    The hitman who allegedly killed Incontrera turned himself in Tuesday night.
    Another boss arrested was Tommaso Lo Presti, who got out of jail after serving years for Mafia offences in 2020.
    Police said they made the arrests to avert an internecine feud within the clan. (ANSA).
