Mobsters' bunker in Italy found, with 12 guns, pasta pot

Italian police have discovered an underground bunker in the countryside of southern Calabria with two fugitive mobsters holed up inside.

The convicted 'ndrangheta clan bosses had a dozen firearms, including a Kalashnikov, and a pasta pot neatly hanging on a wall. Tomatoes, salad and what looked like a plate of ricotta were on the counter when police raided the bunker early Friday.

Vines and bushes camouflaged the hideout.

Police said they are trying to find a network of accomplices they suspect helped Giuseppe Crea to elude capture for 10 years and Giuseppe Ferraro for almost 20 years. Crea faces 22 years in prison for Mafia association; Ferraro was sentenced to life imprisonment, including for a murder conviction.

The cocaine-trafficking 'ndrangheta is one of the world's most powerful criminal organizations.
