Tuesday, February 7, 2017

The United States granted El Salvador $98 million as part of a plan to combat lawlessness and corruption and diminish the flow of migrants heading north.

The funds, which were approved by the U.S. Congress in 2015, will be used to prioritize security and development strategies in 50 impoverished areas of the Central American country, which is plagued by drug gangs.
