Violent Salvadoran gangs cement truce in a bakery

Tuesday, January 29, 2013

In Ilopango, El Salvador, a truce between two violent street gangs is holding--thanks to a bakery. Approximately 20 members of the 18th Street Gang opened a bakery in the town, located several miles east of the capital.

The gangsters-turned-bakers work out of a converted 400-square-foot home that has electricity but no running water.
