SAN SALVADOR, El Salvador (AP) — El Salvador's government says it will not grant Spain's request to extradite 13 former military officers indicted in the 1989 slayings of six Jesuit priests and two other people.

The country's Supreme Court says nine of its 15 magistrates have ruled against the Spanish request to try a total of 15 former officers for the killings during the Central American country's 1980-1992 civil war. While most of the 15 defendants are still in El Salvador, two now live in the United States.

Five of the priests slain were Spanish and the sixth was Salvadoran.

Supreme Court magistrate Ulises de Dios Guzman did not cite the reasons for the ruling late Tuesday.
