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.
