Mexico captures No.1 drug kingpin ‘Shorty’ Guzman

Mexican drug kingpin Joaquin “Shorty” Guzman, was captured early on Saturday with help from U.S. agencies in a major victory for the government in a long, brutal drugs war.

He was caught in his native northwestern state of Sinaloa in an early morning operation without a shot being fired, Attorney General Jesus Murillo Karam said, adding that Guzman’s identity had been 100 percent confirmed.

Guzman, known as “El Chapo”, Shorty, in Spanish, has long run Mexico’s infamous Sinaloa Cartel and over the past decade emerged as one of the world’s most powerful organized crime bosses.
