Mexico: Drug lord Joaquin Guzman used tunnel to escape from prison
July 13 , 2015
Joaquin Guzman, one of Mexico’s most notorious drug lords, escaped from Altiplano jail through a tunnel, officials say.
The escape route was over a mile long and had stairs and ventilation, according to the national security commissioner.
His jail break has come as a major embarrassment for the Mexican government. President Enrique Pena Nieto said that he was “profoundly shocked” by the development.
This is the second time Guzman escaped from a high-security prison.
