El Salvador

El Salvador is a Latin American country that is rapidly industrializing, yet continues to struggle with high rates of poverty, inequality, and crime.

San Salvador, the capital, is considered the deadliest city in the Western Hemisphere. Violence between gangs and police kills thousands every year, and often those affected are innocent children.
