Reporter Åsa Welander goes to El Salvador for the beatification of Oscar Romero, a champion of the poor and marginalized who spoke against the military regime. Romero was killed 35 years ago, and this past spring the Vatican took the first steps to put him on a path towards sainthood, but Romero is already regarded as a hero in El Salvador for his strong stance against poverty and oppression.

To accompany this story, we are also featuring photos taken by Encarni Pindado during the time of the beatification ceremony in El Salvador.
