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.

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 organisations.
