El Salvador broadcast stories

Two recent broadcast stories about El Salvador are worth watching or listening to. First is a news story from the English language version of the Al Jazeera network. The segment looks at the impact of the global economic crisis on El Salvador by focusing on the town of Intipuca, where remittances are an important part of the local economy (as is true everywhere in the country).

Second is a radio show on WAMU in Washington, D.C. This interview show focused on the 1989 murder of the Jesuit priests and the new attempt to try responsible parties in the Spanish courts. The guests were Diane Orentlicher, Professor of International Law and Director of War Crimes Research Office, American University, and Douglas Farah, former Washington Post Correspondent in El Salvador from 1987-1990.
