Colombia has sent an additional 2,000 troops to help contain a gang that has threatened people as reprisal for the extradition of its leader to the US.

The country’s Defence Minister, Diego Molano said the extra troops would be sent to support almost 50,000 personnel already deployed.

President Iván Duque said Dairo Úsuga, was the world’s most dangerous trafficker.

Gang members destroyed at least 100 vehicles on Friday during violent protests against their leader’s extradition; they also intimidated civilians, warning them to stay at home.
