The Maras gangas in Spain, linked to the Cartels and drug trafficking

The Maras (U.S. street gangs expulsed to Central America, specially El Salvador and Honduras) have established in Spain since 2005.  According to a government report obtaine by spanish paper La Razón , the Maras (Barrio 18 and MS13  gangs) could now use the country’s fragile economic situation to expand in the traffic of narcotics.

Spain is a jumping off point for cocaine distributed in Europe.  The U.S. designated the Maras (started as a street gang in the streets of Los Angeles) as a transnational criminal organization.

The Maras are becoming genuinely transnational operations.
