Italian and U.S. police have launched a coordinated crackdown on a Sicilian Mafia family that was seeking to rebuild its power base after years of exile in the United States, Italian investigators said Wednesday. More than 200 police, including officers from the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation, arrested 18 people in Sicily as part of their investigation into the Inzerillo clan in the island's capital Palermo and the allied New York-based Gambino family.The family has since looked to reclaim its old business, police said, helped by influential allies in New York.There was no immediate comment from either the Gambino or Inzerillo families.The Gambinos are one of the five historic Italian-American Mafia families in New York.
