Mexican drug lord El Chapo Guzman has been recaptured
El Chapo is the world’s most wanted drug lord. And today he was captured for a third time in armed raids by Mexican marines, six months after he escaped from a maximum security prison.
They caught him in the city of Los Mochis, in Guzman’s home state of Sinaloa. He was taken alive and not wounded.
Five people were killed and one Mexican marine were wounded in the clash.
The Mexican President announced the capture on Twitter, writing: “Mission accomplished: we have him.”
Will Mexico try to detain again in their prisons after failing to detain him in 2001 and 2015?
The US has sought his extradition, though Mexico has said in the past he would serve his sentences in Mexico first.
