Mafia ‘Kingpin’ Escapes From Prison

Rocco Morabito, an Italian Mafia boss, has escaped from a police cell in Montevideo, Uruguay.

El Pais reports that Morabito and three other detainees escaped through the roof of the Police Headquarters in the capital of the South American country, and hid in the house of a neighbour after their run-off.

The report said one of the prisoners had previously escaped from a prison in Brazil.

The ex-boss of the Calabrian mafia was supposed to be extradited to Italy for prosecution in the coming months.
