    Italian police on Wednesday seized 27 pizzerias, cafes and other eateries in the heart of Rome, as well as other businesses elsewhere, in a probe highlighting seemingly legitimate businesses fronting for organized crime. The national anti-Mafia prosecutor's office said other confiscated properties included gas stations and parking lots near Naples train stations, allegedly used to launder Camorra syndicate revenue from drug trafficking, extortion and loan-sharking.
