Carlos Ernesto Mojica Lechuga, aka 'El Viejo Lin', member of the Barrio 18 gang, attends a press conference where leaders of the five gangs --Mara Salvatrucha (MS-13), Barrio 18, MAO-MAO, Máquina and Mirada Locos-- demand the US to support the truce they started on 2012 --which had already lowered the daily murder rate from 14 to 5-- on January 28, 2013 at La Esperanza prison in San Salvador. The US State Department recently issued a travel warning to US citizens about the security situation in El Salvador. The leaders have assured tourists their safety and well-being while visiting the country and have given instructions to their members to respect them.
