Hundreds mourn Mafia boss Vito Rizzuto

Hundreds of people are filing into a Montreal funeral home today to pay their respects to reputed Mafia boss Vito Rizzuto.

Rizzuto — the head of a powerful criminal organization with international reach — died of natural causes in hospital last Monday.

The line of mourners was so long this afternoon it snaked around the side of building.

The surrounding streets were so busy that police were on hand to direct traffic.

Officers in unmarked police vehicles could also be seen taking photos of people entering the building.

Rizzuto's funeral will be held tomorrow at a Catholic church in Montreal's Little Italy neighbourhood.
