El Salvador is in the news again this week as armed police and troops stormed the parliament. This came less than a week after Human Rights Watch issued a scathing report that found that more than 200 refugees and asylum seekers the United States has sent back to El Salvador have been killed or seriously abused - including sexually assaulted and tortured.

To take a closer look at the horror show wrought by three decades of US foreign policy in Central America is award-winning journalist and producer William Wheeler, reading from his first book, "State of War: MS-13 and El Salvador’s World of Violence".
