Violence in El Salvador

Edited photographer caption: Crime has reached new levels in Latin American countries. In El Salvador in the last year, crime has risen rapidly and can become, dangerously, a symbolic demonstration of power. Violent confrontation occurs between Salvadorian gangs and the state. Victims include babies, pregnant women and the elderly.
