Wednesday, June 22, 2011

The Central American countries have $850 million available for public security, according to the Inter-American Development Bank.

Only a quarter of the money, however, is earmarked for regional purposes. The Central American countries have calculated that a $900 million regional fund is needed to combat organized crime.

The presidents of Central America, Mexico and Colombia are to meet today with US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in Guatemala.
