Mexican Drug Lord extradition to US

    Mexican Drug Lord extradition to US

    Jan 10, Mexican City: The Mexican attorney general's office said that it would begin the process of extraditing recaptured Mexican drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman to the US, media reports said.

    The office said that the move was in line with US extradition requests from 2014.

    Guzman was detained and sent back to the maximum-security prison on Friday where he escaped from six months ago.

    Guzman, who was one of the world's most wanted drug traffickers, escaped from there in July through a tunnel dug in the showers.

    That was his second escape - he was first arrested in Guatemala in 1993 and escaped from Puente Grande jail in 2001, reportedly in a laundry basket after bribing officials.

    He was on the run for 13 years before being held again in 2014.
