The Italian authorities have seized assets worth 1.3bn euros ($1.7bn: £1.1bn) from a Sicilian businessman involved in renewable energy. Investigators allege that Vito Nicastri was a front man for the Mafia, or Cosa Nostra, investing illegal earnings in his business empire. The anti-mafia agency said in a statement it was the biggest ever seizure of mafia-linked assets. Mr Nicastri has been confined to his home town as investigations continue. The 57-year-old's assets include 43 wind and solar energy companies and 98 properties. So heavily was Mr Nicastri involved in renewable energy, Italian media dubbed him the "Lord of the Wind".THE KING OF THE WIND - AL GORE - HAD NO COMMENT.
