In Spain, a former Salvadoran Army colonel was convicted Friday for the 1989 murder of five Jesuit priests. Inocente Orlando Montano served as El Salvador’s vice security minister. He was sentenced to 133 years for ordering the attack that was carried out by a U.S-trained counterinsurgency force. Montano lived in the United States for 16 years, was extradited to Madrid in 2017. The death squad killed six Jesuit priests, their housekeeper and her daughter, but five of the Jesuit priests were from Spain. It was their murder that he was convicted of.
