Gangs Set Bus on Fire, Kill Passengers in El Salvador
At least 16 people were killed Sunday night when street gangs attacked passengers in two buses—setting fire to one of them—that were traveling through an area of San Salvador plagued by crime. Authorities say recent attacks are the result of the increased presence of drug traffickers and come as gang members demand protection money from bus companies.
