Drug Lord El Chapo Wounded in Failed Recapture Attempt

According to Mexican officials, drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman has suffered multiple injuries after authorities recently attempted to recapture him.

State officials said they recently closed in on Guzman in northwestern Mexico at a ranch near Cosala in the rugged mountains in western Mexico.
When Mexican marines working with US drug agents, raided the ranch in helicopters but were forced to turn back after coming under fire. Marines then entered the camp on foot, but Guzman and his accomplices had already fled on ATVs.
In a statement, the Mexican government said it had worked with international agencies to capture Guzman. It said:

    “As a result of these actions, and to avoid his capture, in recent days, the fugitive engaged in a hasty retreat which, according to the information received, caused him injuries to one leg and the face… It’s important to clarify that these injuries were not a product of a direct clash.”
