Clockwise from top left: Gang leader Carlos Tiberio Valladares mirrored in his prison cell in Ciudad Barrios. At the time photographed, while the truce (see opposite) was still in operation, this prison was not only reserved for members of the Mara Salvatrucha (MS-13) gang but was even run by them without guards. As the photo top right shows, 70 inmates live in cells designed for 20, with beds hanging from the ceiling due to the lack of floor space.  The photo bottom left shows police in the capital, San Salvador, searching members of the rival Barrio 18 gang. Bottom right: Valeria Michel Hercules is supported by friends on the way to the funeral of her stillborn child in the Las Victorias district of San Salvador.Photos by Adam Hinton/Panos Pictures
