Police are plotting grim landmarks of a sprawling underworld power struggle between Canadian Mafia clans — murders, bombings and arsons that stretch from suburban Ontario streets to a drainage ditch in Mexico.

Jabril Hassan Abdalla, 27, was arrested Wednesday at 3 p.m. in his Hamilton home for last year’s murders of Hamilton mobster Angelo Musitano, 39, whose family has had a significant Mafia presence for generations, and of Mila Barberi, 28, who was shot inadvertently in a parking lot in Vaughan, north of Toronto.

Both triggermen are believed to have fled to Mexico.

The murders represent a renewed wave of instability in the criminal underworld.
