Ecuadorian youth King Anthony (24) and his daughter, one of three from different girlfriends.  His necklace is made up of alternating sets of five gold and five black beads, which identify him as a member of the Latino gang Almighty Latin King Nation (ALKN).  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.
