The Administration is providing an additional $9.1 million in assistance to El Salvador's police forces and also is giving $2.8 million in similar aid to Honduran forces for the first time, the State Department said. The United States normally does not provide such aid to foreign police forces, but it made an exception for El Salvador two years ago after four U.S. Marines and two American businessmen were killed at a cafe by terrorists. The funds, taken from the $116 million in military aid to El Salvador, will be used for helicopters and police guns, vests, shields and helmets.
