    El Salvador Gang Calls for Ending 'War' with Government

    El Salvador Gang Calls for Ending ‘War’ with Government
    Published 10 January 2017
    MS-13’s proposal aims to stem the crisis of violence in El Salvador and stop the escalation toward an all-out war between gangs and government forces.

    Leaders of the Mara Salvatrucha, or MS-13, in El Salvador have drafted a new proposal to negotiate a peace agreement with the government that would include the possible disintegration of the criminal gang in the Central American country, the online magazine El Faro reports.

    The MS-13 has issued a call for talks that would include all political parties, the government, human rights organizations and leaders of the three main gangs operating in the country: 18 Sureños, 18 Revolucionarios — both factions of the Barrio 18 gang — and Mara Salvatrucha.
