Italian mafia boss Giuseppe Falsone was arrested in France on Friday, after more than a decade on the run, in a joint operation by police from both Italy and France, according to reporting by the BBC and National Turk.

Falsone, 40, was caught in Marseille and was believed to have undergone plastic surgery and been using false identification. He had already been sentenced to life in prison for murder and international drug trafficking.

He is thought to have been the mafia boss for Sicily's province of Agrigento.
