Vice News: Gangs of El Salvador: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HGG7lRJJkJk
El Salvador is set to eclipse Honduras as the country with the highest homicide rate in the world. El Salvadors murder rate is now the highest its been since the end of the countrys brutal civil war- there is on average around one murder an hour. The staggering death toll follows the breakdown of a truce between powerful, rival gangs and the government. Police and military are now combatting the gangs head-on and, as part of its so-called “iron fist” strategy, gang members are being charged with a new crime- membership of a terrorist organization. VICE News correspondent Danny Gold headed to El Salvador to investigate what many are now calling a war between the street gangs and the government.
