Mexico drug lordOne of the world's most wanted drug barons, Joaquin Guzman, known as El Chapo or "Shorty", has been arrested in Mexico.  He was the leader of the Sinaloa cartel, which smuggles huge amounts of illegal drugs into the US.

"Shorty" Guzman had been on the run since escaping a high-security prison in a laundry basket in 2001.  He was arrested in Sinaloa state, in a joint operation with US anti-drugs forces.

Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto used his Twitter account to praise the forces involved in the arrest in the north-western resort of Mazatlan, in Sinaloa state.

Guzman was taken to Mexico City and paraded before the media, before boarding a helicopter surrounded by heavily armed troops.
