The Wider Image: From crime to baking - ex gang members seek peace
Gang life in the poor Central American country of El Salvador is hard, but for a dozen former members of the feared 18th Street Gang, building a new life outside is no less difficult. Wilfredo Gomez joined a gang as an adolescent in Los Angeles, the U.S. city to which his parents emigrated. He said he was enticed by the guns, the girls and the camaraderie of gang life. He wound up in jail before being deported back to his native country. With few links to El Salvador, he quickly returned to gang life. A 10-year jail sentence for stealing an Uzi submachine gun gave him time to reckon with his choices. REUTERS/Jose Cabezas SEARCH "CABEZAS BAKERY" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES.
