Top drug lord in underground cell

  • Head of the Sinalos drug cartel Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman is being kept in an underground cell located near Mexico City. NBC News reports that the drug lord is wanted in three districts in the US and the Drug Enforcement Administration's Chicago office chief said he would have him tried in the country.

    According to the Los Angeles Times, Guzman was sleeping next to an AK-47 when the authorities found and arrested him. An expert mentioned that his arrest doesn't mean anything to the cartel considering that he doesn't have much to do with its daily functioning.
