Protect El Salvador truce, urge gang members

A ceasefire between gangs in El Salvador needs to be supported, gang members have told the BBC.

The country, which has the second highest murder rate in the world, has seen a rise in violence despite the truce two years ago.

Correspondent Will Grant travelled to El Salvador for BBC Radio 5 live's Shelagh Fogarty to ask members of the Mara Salvatrucha gang if the ceasefire could be protected.

They appeared optimistic, with one man telling him that their "intention is that this ends well," and another claiming, "We're here in the right spirit to do the right thing."
