BBC News - 'Top gangster' arrested in Japan: "Police in Japan have arrested a man alleged to be second in command of Japan's biggest yakuza crime syndicate.
He is accused of extorting more than $400,000 (£250,000) from a businessman in the construction industry.
The arrest comes amid a crackdown on gangsters ahead of the expected release of the top boss of the syndicate, the Yamaguchi-gumi, in spring 2011.
Energised by a scandal over gangster involvement in sumo wrestling, Japan's police are cracking down on the yakuza.
Now they have arrested a man suspected of being one of the most powerful crime bosses in the country.
Kiyoshi Takayama, a pencil-moustached 63-year-old, is accused of extortion."
