“El Chapo” – Joaquin Guzman has been recaptured


In the confrontation  five suspects were killed and six others arrested. One marine was wounded. An arsenal including a rocket-propelled grenade launcher was seized. Two armored vehicles were also found. The presumed boss of the north zone of Sinaloa for the Sinaloa drug Cartel, Orso Ivan Gastelum Cruz, escaped during the operation. On Friday, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration congratulated Mexican officials for recapturing Guzmán. Guzman is 58-year-old. He became Mexico’s top drug kingpin in 2003 after the arrest of his rival Osiel Cárdenas of the Gulf Cartel, and is considered the “most powerful drug trafficker in the world” by the United States Department of the Treasury. In 2013, the Chicago Crime Commission named Guzmán “Public Enemy Number One” for the influence of his criminal network in Chicago.
