Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto tweeted today that the infamous drug lord known as “El Chapo” has been captured.
“Mission accomplished: We have him. I want to inform the Mexicans that Joaquin Guzman Loera has been detained,” the tweet states, written in Spanish.
An official from the Mexico Marines confirms that Guzman was captured after a shootout with Mexican Marines in the city of Los Mochis, in the state of Sinaloa.
Guzman, 57, escaped from the Altiplano prison near Mexico City July 11 and there has been an active manhunt for him ever since.Do you ever witness anything interesting or exciting?
