A noticeboard with pictures of a portion of gang members held at the prison of Izalco is seen, about 65 km (40 miles) from San Salvador June 19, 2012. Last Saturday marked the 100th day of an unprecedented truce between two violent Salvadoran gangs to reduce the high rate of homicides in the Central American country, which has begun to yield the expected results, said the Catholic church. The leaders of the Mara Salvatrucha (MS-13) gang and their rival 18 decided last March to end the fighting and killing among them to reduce the alarming murder rates in the impoverished country.
