Mexican drug kingpin Guzman captured in Mexico: sources
By Mark Hosenball and Lizbeth Diaz WASHINGTON/MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Mexico's most wanted man, drug kingpin Joaquin "Shorty" Guzman, has been captured in Mexico by U.S. and Mexican law enforcement officials, sources said on Saturday, in what would mark a major coup in a grisly fight against drug gangs. A Mexican security source confirmed the capture, saying it took place in Mazatlan, a seaside resort in Guzman's northwestern home state of Sinaloa. In Mexico City, presidential spokesman Eduardo Sanchez said authorities have "captured an individual in Sinaloa" and that they were working to confirm his identity. Guzman, known as "El Chapo" (Shorty) in Spanish, runs Mexico's infamous Sinaloa Cartel, which has been fighting a brutal war with other gangs over turf and drug-trafficking routes to the United States.
