Destroy El Salvador's gangs, urges Rudolph Giuliani

Wednesday, May 6, 2015

El Salvador's two rival gangs must be destroyed in order to quell violent crime in the increasingly lawless Central American country, former New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani said at a business conference in San Salvador.

Violence in El Salvador has increased ever since a 2012 truce between rival gangs Barrio 18 and Mara Salvatrucha started to unravel.
