Denver (AP) Authorities say 20 people who were allegedly trying to bring the violent MS-13 gang to Denver have been indicted on drug charges after an international investigation that included agents from the FBI and El Salvador.

The U.S. Department of Justice and the Metro Gang Task Force said yesterday that all but four suspects are in custody.

The FBI says the MS-13 gang was started in Los Angeles by Salvadoran immigrants and has an estimated 7,000 to 10,000 members in 42 states.
