El Salvador elections: Ex-rebel takes on gang fighter
2 February 2014 Last updated at 22:41 GMT
The people of El Salvador are voting in a presidential election.
The main rivals are current Vice-President Salvador Sanchez Ceren of the left-wing FMLN party and Norman Quijano of the conservative Arena alliance.
Neither is expected to win outright because a third candidate standing for a new independent party is likely to make a strong showing.
