Two Ecuadorian members of the Latino urban gang Almighty Latin King Nation (ALKN) gesture with their hands, making the shape of a crown, the gang's symbol, with their fingers.  Members of the Latin kings greet each other with the phrase 'Amor de Rey', King's Love.  The Latin Kings, whose members turned to the gang culture in Spain after arriving as immigrants and experiencing social exclusion among their peers, is one of the largest gang organisations in the Americas.  Crime and street fighting between various gangs in Spain's major cities is common as they vie for control of particular neighbourhoods.
