Salvador Sanchez is the new president of El Salvador

Salvador Sanchez Ceren (69) of the FMLN party has become the first former guerrilla to sworn-in as the President of the Central American country following his March win. Mr. Sanchez defeated the conservative candidate Norman Quijano by just 0.2% in a run-off vote on March 9, 2014.

El Salvador is still violent and deeply divided notwithstanding the end of a civil war in which some 75,000 people died.
