San Salvador is the Murder Capital of the World

El Salvador is the world’s most violent country and its capital, San Salvador, is the city with the most homicides in the world. In 2015 there were 49 police officers assassinated. According to new figures by the Institute of Legal Medicine in El Salvador, there were 6,656 killings last year. The national homicide rate is 116 per 100,000, more then 17 times the global average. Toda esta violencia ha hecho que los Salvadoreños flee to Mexico and the United States. Like always the cause of all this violence is drugs. Much of the cocaine smuggled from Colombia goes through El Salvador before it gets to the U.S. To complicate things, El Salvador’s main gangs – the Mara Salvatrucha and the Barrio 18 are at war with the police and each other, causing an all out war. Y claro como en casi toda Latino America hay mucha corrupción. La droga es como el cancer and until the war on drugs ends so will the violence in Latin America.
