"Italy's Govt Agrees To Send in Army Against Mafia Dumps"

"The Italian government agreed Tuesday to send in the army to fight the mafia which it blames for illegally dumping tonnes of toxic garbage around Naples, in an area dubbed the 'Triangle of Death'."

"The army can be deployed 'to deal with in the most efficient manner the phenomenon of the environment mafia in the area between Naples and Caserta,' said Defence Undersecretary Gioacchino Alfano.

Parliament is due to examine the decree but Alfano said that 'for the first time, all political forces are in agreement to offer concrete solutions to resolve a specific problem'."
