Drug lord Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman has been captured, Mexican president announces
Drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman has been captured, Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto announced Friday via Twitter. "Mission Accomplished," the President wrote. "We have him." Mexican Federal Police spokesman Jose Ramon Salinas confirmed Guzman's capture to CNN. Nicknamed "Shorty" for his height, Guzman has escaped twice from Mexican custody. The first was from a maximum-security prison in 2001 when he reportedly hid in a laundry cart.
