NEW YORK (AP) — Federal agents have arrested dozens of suspected mobsters in multiple investigations of New York's organized crime families.

The FBI says most of the arrests were made Thursday morning throughout New York City, in New Jersey and New England. Charges include murder, extortion and narcotics trafficking.

Attorney General Eric Holder and other officials were expected to discuss the cases later Thursday at a news conference in Brooklyn.

The takedown was another blow to New York's five Mafia crime families. Federal probes aided by mob turncoats have decimated the families' ranks and resulted in lengthy prison terms for several leaders.
