The head of El Salvador’s parliament accused President Nayib Bukele of an “attempted coup” after soldiers entered the building while Bukele demanded lawmakers approve a military loan.

Bukele called an extraordinary weekend session of parliament to ask it to approve a $109 million loan to equip the military and police to fight against violent gangs. The loan has pitted the executive against lawmakers in a country with one of the world’s highest murder rates, AFP reports.
