Journalist Lisa Ling has reported from danger zones all over the world, but this assignment nearly got her abducted and almost killed. She's penetrating the violent street gang MS-13.

MS-13 stands for "Mara Salvatrucha," a name Lisa says everyone needs to remember. Once a localized Los Angeles problem, the gang has grown into an international threat.
