Rosario Levatino was killed by the mafia on September 21, 1990

Italy celebrates the beatification of a judge, who was shot dead by the mafia in his car, at one last stage before he was awarded the title of sainthood.

The Catholic Church, Rosario Levatino, was canonized at a mass in Argiento, Sicily, on Sunday, 28 years after the day after he was declared martyr.

Pope John Paul II declared this in 1993, and famously condemned the mafia.

Levatino was running a mass trial against Mafia members at the time of his murder.
