Sunday Zine :‘El Chapo’ Flown to Sinaloan Mountains After Escape, Mexico Says

‘El Chapo’ Flown to Sinaloan Mountains After Escape, Mexico Says.



(MEXICO CITY) — Fugitive drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman was flown to a
mountainous region of his home state of Sinaloa following his daring July 11
escape from prison through a mile-long tunnel, a federal official said
Saturday.


Based on this information, the search for the world’s most wanted drug lord
has focused in recent weeks on a rugged area that stretches from Sinaloa into
neighboring Durango state, part of Mexico’s famed Golden Triangle drug-producing
region that is considered Guzman’s home turf, said the official, who spoke on
condition of anonymity because the investigation is ongoing.


The official said that after his escape from the maximum-security prison
where he was being held not far from Mexico City, Guzman was taken to the
central state of Queretaro. From there, he was flown in a small plane to the
Sinaloan mountains, the official said.


Several days ago, Mexican Attorney General Arely Gomez told Congress that
authorities had captured a pilot who aided Guzman after his escape. The federal
official said Saturday that it was the pilot who flew the escaped drug lord in
the small plane.


Late Friday, Mexico’s government said Guzman had avoided capture in an
operation in the mountains of northwestern Mexico.


A statement by Mexico’s Security Cabinet said officials think the legendary
drug lord injured a leg and his face fleeing Mexican marines in the rugged
terrain. It provided no details on when or exactly where the operation took
place, but the area of mountains of Sinaloa and Durango is in northwest
Mexico.


The statement cited information-sharing with international agencies for
leading authorities to the area.


Guzman previously escaped from another maximum-security prison in 2001, and
evaded capture for years in the mountains of Sinaloa.


His most recent escape strained relations with Washington, which had formally
requested the drug kingpin’s extradition just weeks earlier.


A variety of U.S. officials, including lawmakers and law enforcement
officials, had called for Guzman’s transfer to the U.S. since his arrest in
February 2014. Mexican officials, however, said Guzman wouldn’t be sent to the
U.S. until he had served time for all of his crimes in Mexico.


Guzman escaped through a sophisticated tunnel that opened in the floor of his
cell’s shower. A surveillance video of Guzman’s cell shows him walking to the
shower — where there was a blind spot in the security camera’s view — crouching
down and then vanishing.


Mexico has issued arrest warrants for 23 former officials, guards or police
officers for allegedly participating in his escape. In addition, 10 civilians
are being held under a form of house arrest.


Guzman is considered the power behind the lucrative Sinaloa Cartel.
