Resurgence in violence shocks El Salvador

Wednesday, April 8, 2015

Last month, 481 people were murdered in El Salvador, making March the country’s most deadly month in a decade as authorities struggle to cope with the collapse of a controversial gang truce.

El Salvador had enjoyed a relative respite from violence after the Catholic church and the country’s previous government helped negotiate a truce between the country’s biggest street gangs in February 2012.
