El Salvador's civil war ended 13 years ago, but the Central American country's capital still looks like a war zone.

Soaring gang violence has created a new breed of child killers, many of \whom weren't even born when peace broke out. Reporter Ramita Navai and \director Alex Nott enter San Salvador's brutal underworld, where the \deployment of thousands of soldiers on the streets can't prevent 50 \murders a day\

'As ever with this current affairs strand, this is compelling and brave film-making'
