Mara Salvatrucha killings : Authorities arrest more than 50 members of MS-13 gang in Boston area

More than 50 members of the MS-13 gang in and around Boston have been indicted on federal racketeering charges, federal authorities announced Friday.
The notoriously violent gang, also known as La Mara Salvatrucha, is known for using machetes to kill and injure rival gang members. In 2012, MS-13 became the first and remains the only street gang to be designated by the U.S. government as a "transnational criminal organization," according to the indictment.
In all, 56 gang members were indicted on racketeering conspiracy charges, including charges related to murder, conspiracy to commit murder and attempted murder. Some are also charged with drug trafficking, firearm violations, immigration offenses and fraudulent document charges.
The gang has more than 30,000 members internationally — mainly in El Salvador, Mexico, Honduras and Guatemala — and over 6,000 members in the U.S., the indictment says.
