Young men come around once a week to collect $20 from store owner Carlos Tevez, the "tax" he pays to continue operating his business and to keep his family safe. The routine hasn't changed, despite a truce between Salvadoran street gangs that officials say has caused a dramatic drop in killings in the country.
Two men with butcher knives hacked another to death Wednesday near a London military barracks and one then went on video to explain the crime — shouting political statements, gesturing with bloodied hands and waving a meat cleaver.

The defense attorney for a man arrested in what the FBI has called a thwarted terror plot in western Minnesota said Wednesday that authorities have given the public some misinformation about his client, while a local police chief said authorities continue to keep an eye on the anti-government militia group founded by his family.
FBI officials said Monday that they foiled a terrorism attack that was being planned in a small western Minnesota town, but they offered no details about the exact targets of the attack — or the motive of the man accused of having a cache of explosives and weapons in a mobile home.
The Moroccan man accused of plotting to carry out what he thought would be a suicide bombing at the U.S. Capitol told acquaintances that America's war on terrorism was a war on Muslims and that they needed to be ready for battle, according to authorities.

Prosecutors portray Tarek Mehanna as a terrorist in the making, a man who tried to help al-Qaida by promoting violent jihad online and traveling to Yemen to seek training in a terrorist camp. But Mehanna's lawyers say he was just a college kid expressing his political views the way many people do — over the Internet — and no matter how unpopular his opinions, they are protected by the First Amendment. As Mehanna goes on trial in Boston next week, some experts see it as a case that will test the limits of counter-terrorism laws.
Two Minnesota women who claimed they were helping the poor in Somalia were convicted Thursday of conspiring to funnel money to a terrorist group as part of what prosecutors called a "deadly pipeline" sending funds and fighters to al-Shabab.
The trial of two Minnesota women accused of funneling money to a terror group is being closely watched by members of the state's Somali community, with many saying it is breeding mistrust in an immigrant population already fearful of government.
The secret airlift of terrorism suspects and American intelligence officials to CIA-operated overseas prisons via luxury jets was mounted by a hidden network of U.S. companies and coordinated by a prominent defense contractor, newly disclosed documents show.
