    BREAKING NEWS


    More than 100 suspected
    members and associates of six
    Mafia families have been arrested
    in what the FBI described as the
    biggest organized crime round-up
    in New York history.

    Significant leaders of the Gambino,
    Genovese, Lucchese, Lange, Bonanno and
    Colombo families and also the
    DeCavalcante of New Jersey were
    among those being arrested, NBC
    New York reported.

    "Early this morning FBI agents
    along with our law enforcement
    partners began arresting over 100
    organized crime members for
    various criminal charges," said
    Diego Rodriguez, the FBI's special
    agent in charge in New York.

    The charges ranged from murder
    to extortion, narcotics trafficking

    and illegal gambling, officials said.

    Hundreds of FBI officials, NYPD
    officers, state police and U.S.
    marshals were involved in the
    operation. The FBI said most of the
    arrests were made throughout New
    York City, in New Jersey and New
    England.

    Attorney General Eric Holder and
    other officials were expected to
    discuss the cases later Thursday at
    a news conference in Brooklyn.

    Charges include murder, extortion, narcotics trafficking, illegal gambling

    'Senior mob figures'
    Citing sources who had been
    briefed on the arrests, the New
    York Times reported that those
    taken into custody "ranged from
    small-time book makers and
    crime-family functionaries to a
    number of senior mob figures and
    several corrupt union officials."

    More than two dozen "made"
    mobsters were arrested, according
    to the Times.

    The murder charges were incidents
    dating back to the 1980s and
    1990s, the newspaper reported.

    Federal probes aided by mob
    turncoats have decimated the
    ranks of New York's five Mafia
    crime families and resulted in
    lengthy prison terms for several
    leaders.

    In 2008, more than 80 suspected
    members of organized crime gangs
    were charged.

    Among those targeted in that raid
    were John "Jackie the Nose"
    D'Amico and other reputed leaders
    of the Gambino crime family.
    Italian authorities conducted
    simultaneous raids on Mafia
    groups there.

    However, these latest raids
    surpassed that in terms of
    numbers of people arrested.

    Organized crime is still active in
    New York's construction industry,
    according to the FBI. There is also
    said to be Mafia involvement in
    labor union corruption, loan-
