In December 1981, the inhabitants of a small Salvadoran hamlet were systematically exterminated by the Atacatl Battalion, a U.S.-trained counterinsurgency force.

The White House ignored and deflected reports that hundreds of unarmed women, children and men were shot, hung or beheaded.
Today, the truth is known beyond any doubt. Fifteen years after one of the worst massacres in Latin American history, Dossier reports on the incident at El Mozote.The Truth of El Mozote(152 clicks)
