El Salvador Declares Street Gangs As Terrorist Groups, Supreme Court Rules

“El Salvador’s Supreme Court ruled Monday that street gangs in the country would be considered terrorist outfits, the Associated Press (AP) reported. The move comes after 14 members of the infamous Barrio 18 gang were killed in a prison in the Central American nation Saturday. The court said that any gang, including the notorious Marasalvatrucha, or MS-13, and Barrio 18, which tries to assert powers belonging to the state would be seen as a terrorist group, the AP reported.”
