Nephew of mob boss among 11 arrested ; ROME —The nephew of the Mafia's "boss of bosses" and 10 other suspected gangsters have been arrested in what prosecutors Thursday called a blow to the very heart of the Corleone mob. The arrests took place over the past few days in and around the Sicilian hill- town of Corleone, according GRIZZAFFI to Italy>s anti ' UHI^AI-N Mafia agency i Among those arrested is Mario Prizzaffi, 31, the nephew of Salvatore "Toto" Riina, the imprisoned ''capo dei capi" or "boss of bosses." '• Riina, one of the most ferocious mob bosses ever, is currently Serving nine life sentences for murder and other crimes. He was arrested in 1993 after two decades on the run. ;', The agency said the wave of ar; tests was "directed at identifying 'find defeating the very heart" of ' the new leadership of the Corleone-based Mafia. !

' j !; From Wire Service Reports Bringing religions closer together has been a goal of John Paul II By The Associated Press VATICAN CITY — The image will be familiar: A frail Pope John Paul II celebrating Mass amid the rubble of battle. After visiting Sarajevo last month, the pontiff travels this weekend to Beirut — another war- ravaged city that became a symbol of mindless strife. His visit to Lebanon has an added dimension. Nearly half of the city's 3.2 million population is Christian, making it an outpost for the religion in the mostly Muslim Middle East. As early as 1982, John Paul expressed a desire to go to Lebanon, "the center of so much suffering." But the country's 1975-90 civil war kept him away for years, and a planned 1994 trip* was canceled because of a terrorist bombing of a church. JOHN PAUL II Vatican officials say the specific purpose of the visit Saturday and Sunday is to deliver a formal message to Lebanese Catholics in response to the conclusions of a Lebanese bishops' meeting in 1995. But the pontiff — who turns 77 on May 18 —- also hopes to turn a symbol of warfare into one of religious harmony. John Paul is going to Lebanon "to heal the wounds that can reopen, to move Lebanon toward what it was before, a symbol of religious co-habitation," papal spokesman Joaquin Navarro- Valls said. It will not be an easy task in a country of 18 separate confessions, where political power is distributed on the basis of faith, where a 15-year war fueled by religious rivalry left 150,000 people dead.
