Jailed Sicilian mobster fingers 364 Mafia suspects

In an unprecedented break with the age-old Mafia code of silence ''omerta,'' a jailed Sicilian mobster led police to the arrest of 62 long-sought Mafia suspects and fingered 304 others, police said Saturday. Mafia chieftain Tommaso Buscetta was recently extradited to Italy from Brazil. Arrests began late Friday , with 3,000 policemen combing Palermo, Italy's international drug-smuggling capital, in a gangster hunt that virtually sealed off the city for hours.
