Two Inmates Slain in Salvadoran Prison

SAN SALVADOR – Two men serving time for homicide at a prison in northeastern El Salvador were murdered, authorities said.

Manuel Enrique Rodriguez Molina, 37, and Miguel Armando de Paz Orellana, 30, both belonged to the Mara Salvatrucha gang, according to information from prosecutors and prison officials.

The men were pronounced dead on Tuesday in the infirmary of San Francisco Gotera penitentiary in Morazan province, 168 kilometers (104 miles) northeast of San Salvador.

The case remains under investigation, authorities said, providing no details about how the men were killed.

Three other reputed Salvatrucha members were gunned down Tuesday in El Jicaro, a community in the eastern province of Usulutan. Four members of a rival gang were fatally shot the day before in the central province of La Paz.

Salvadoran authorities blame the gangs for most of the dozen or so homicides the country experiences on a daily basis.

Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala are among the most dangerous countries in the world, according to a report released last month by the Assessment Capacities Project (ACAPS).

“At 90.4 homicides per 100,000 people, Honduras remains the most violent country in the world. El Salvador (41.2) and Guatemala (39.9) have higher homicide rates now than during their civil wars,” ACAPS pointed out.
