Mafia mobile gun

A gun disguised as a mobile phone has been discovered by police in Italy.

The .22 calibre weapon was found during an early morning raid on a property near Naples.

Officers also seized bullet proof vests, drugs, ammunition and thousands of pounds in cash.

It was all part of an operation against the Camorra, the Naples-based mafia.

Fully loaded, the gun's capable of firing four shots in quick succession through the antenna using buttons on the keypad as the trigger.

One man was arrested by detectives but others are thought to have escaped.
