Law enforcement officers have captured Matteo Messina Denaro, 60,  Italy’s most sought Mafia leader.

The officers arrested him in Sicily after 30 years on the run.

According to reports, the authorities detained Denaro while he underwent cancer treatment in Palermo, the capital of Sicily, using a fake name.
