Since the start of the year there have been 20 murders on an island with a population of just over 300,000, giving it the highest homicide rate in Europe. Most of the slayings, police believe, have been linked to feuds originating in competition for control of protection rackets which target tourist businesses and the lucrative profits to be had from property development on an island that remains relatively unspoiled.
