The world’s biggest drug lord who escaped from a Mexican prison through a mile long tunnel has been caught.
President Pena Neito tweeted the news Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman has been detained after six months on the run.
El Chapo was one of six people arrested after a shootout in which five suspected cartel members were killed, according to Mexican media.
Reports say he was detained while trying to escape through a sewer.
Neito made the astonishing claim on Twitter writing: “Mission complete.”
He added: “I want to inform Mexico (that) Joaquin Guzman Loera has been arrested.”
