1. There are so many bad drug addicts in those parts in the last two decades
The Camorra doesn't normally go around robbing tobacco shops or winging tourists. In fact, if you lived in a Camorra-infested neighborhood, you were generally safer than if you just lived in a regular neighborhood. This kinda sounds like junkies gone wild, stepping up from the usual B and E burglary in the dead of night when no one was home, or the par-for-the-course wallet lifting, purse snatching, or chain-around-the-neck grabbing, often done from a moped.

The officials were speaking after three murders in Naples at the weekend.

Correspondents say the number of people killed or wounded in the city in recent weeks is higher than usual.

Some Neapolitans have been taking the law into their own hands. Last week a tobacconist shot dead a robber.

The authorities are also worried about the effect on tourism - last month a Canadian was hit by a stray bullet while strolling in one of the city's squares.

Mr Mastella said an army deployment in Naples would not involve soldiers going on sensitive missions. Their presence would allow police to concentrate on fighting violent crime, La Repubblica newspaper quoted him as saying.
