Gang Leader Says El Salvador Hasn’t Learned Anything From Martyred Priest (But There’s Still Time)

In a rare joint communique penned by the Salvatrucha (MS-13), the Pandilla 18, the Mao-Mao and the Mirada Locos 13, gang leaders of all ink markings say they want to give the gift of peace to former Archbishop Oscar Romero on his homestretch to sainthood, which is being celebrated with his beatification this weekend in San Salvador.
