El Salvador

The smallest country in continental America, El Salvador borders Guatemala, Honduras and the Pacific Ocean. Since the end of its 12-year civil war in 1992, relative political stability has been restored. In addition to the human rights legacy of the civil war, El Salvador continues to suffer a high rate of violence and insecurity, along with concerns about the Government's treatment of young people involved in criminal gangs.
