Camorra hitman caught thanks to video (ANSA) - Naples, April 15 - Police on Monday arrested a suspected Camorra hitman after obtaining a video of him allegedly killing a drug trafficker at a cheese factory near Naples in December.

The 20-second security-camera footage allegedly shows Gianluca Troise pursuing a member of a rival Naples mafia clan, Luigi Felaco, bringing him down with a shot, racing after him after he gets up, and finishing him off with four shots to the head.

The murder was part of a Camorra turf war for control of international drug trafficking, police said.
