A large proportion of women in Latin America and the Caribbean have experienced sexual violence, mostly committed by men they know, according to a report produced by the Pan American Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The study states that over a quarter of women surveyed in both Guatemala and El Salvador said they had experienced physical or sexual violence from a partner, among women aged 15-49 who had ever been married or lived with a boyfriend. November 25 marks the UN’s International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women.

Gang tattoos are seen on the head of a gang member during a mass at the prison of Izalco, about 65 km (40 miles) from San Salvador June 19, 2012. Last Saturday marked the 100th day of an unprecedented truce between two violent Salvadoran gangs to reduce the high rate of homicides in the Central American country, which has begun to yield the expected results, said the Catholic church. The leaders of the Mara Salvatrucha (MS-13) gang and their rival 18 decided last March to end the fighting and killing among them to reduce the alarming murder rates in the impoverished country.

Suspected gang members, allegedly responsible for attacks on buses, are taken away after being presented to the media at the site where a bus was attacked and burnt in the Mejicanos neighbourhood, on the outskirts of San Salvador, June 21, 2010. El Salvador's police arrested eight suspected gang members on Monday accused of setting a city bus on fire and killing 14 people, one of the worst attacks on civilians by violent street gangs. The attackers brandished guns to stop the bus late on Sunday as it passed through the dangerous neighbourhood. They shot at the bus, doused it with gasoline and lit it on fire as passengers scrambled to escape, authorities said.
