Mara Salvatrucha: Η πιο «αιμοδιψή» συμμορία του Ελ Σαλβαδόρ [Εικόνες]

Κάθε χρόνο η χώρα της Κεντρικής Αμερικής πνίγεται στο αίμα από τις βιαιοπραγίες των «μάρα», των αδίστακτων συμμοριών που διακινούν όπλα και ναρκωτικά. Μια από τις πιο φοβερές συμμορίες είναι η Mara Salvatrucha.

Τα 2.500 μέλη της, τα οποία είναι καλυμμένα με τατουάζ-παράσημα των κατορθωμάτων τους, έχουν δημιουργήσει μια μικρή κοινότητα που διαθέτει ακόμα και το δικό της… νοσοκομείο.

Οι συγκεκριμένοι κακοποιοί προκαλούν τόσο τρόμο στο Ελ Σαλβαδόρ που ακόμα και ως φυλακισμένοι έχουν το πάνω χέρι. Στην φυλακή υψίστης Penas Ciudad Barrios οι φύλακες δεν τολμούν να πλησιάσουν την είσοδο. Εκεί τον απόλυτο έλεγχο τον έχουν τα μέλη της Mara Salvatrucha.

Όπως εξήγησε ο φωτορεπόρτερ Adam Hinton που επισκέφτηκε την συγκεκριμένη περιοχή, τα παιδιά που μεγαλώνουν εκεί έχουν μοναδική επιλογή να γίνουν μέλη συμμοριών.

«Το Ελ Σαλβαδόρ είναι ένα μέρος χωρίς ελπίδα», είπε.

Από τον τερματισμό της ανακωχής μεταξύ των συμμοριών Mara Salvatrucha και Barrio 18 το 2012, οι βιαιοπραγίες έχουν εκτιναχθεί. Η αστυνομία εκτιμά πως οι περισσότερες δολοφονίες οφείλονται σε ξεκαθαρίσματα λογαριασμών και αντίποινα.
