For the first time, the US government has listed a Los Angeles based mexican organized crime   street gang as an international criminal organisation.

Mara Salvatrucha — better known as MS-13 — is considered one of the fastest growing organized crime mafia  networks in the world with thousands of members across the US and Latin America.
