In Spain, the number 13 is the a number that represents bad luck and 18 represents the age when you become an adult. In El Salvador, these numbers are a synonym of death and violence. In our country, the number 701 does not represent anything. In the state of Sinaloa, Mexico, this number represents a symbol of support and admiration towards their "Mr" el 'Chapo' Guzman, who's fortune ranks him in the 701 place of the Forbes magazine.
The war between the Mexican Cartels has already left more deaths than the number of casualties in Iraq and Afghanistan together. In El Salvador, the murder rate is the same as the one in Iraq during the worst times of the conflict. Journalist David Beriain comes back to DMAX to disclose what, and who hides behind those casualties, that have made Central America one of the most dangerous regions of the planet.

Two realities that the journalist will show us from first hand.
"Making 'El Cartel de Sinaloa' was a mayor challenge. We infiltrated the cartel in one of the most complicated moments, after the capture of "El Chapo" Guzman in the middle of a power struggle to succed him. It was a challenge to gain their trust in a moment where they didn't trust each other" explained the journalist Navarro. In regards to the episodes of the violence in El Salvador, Beriain assures that "Its one of the most impressive stories that we have had the privilege of tell.
