Watch the Raid That Led to El Chapo’s Arrest
Footage has been released of the raid that led to Mexican drug lord Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman’s arrest.
Early last Friday morning, Mexican marines stormed notorious drug lord Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman’s hideout in the town of Los Mochis, in his home state of Sinaloa.
Five suspects were killed and six others were arrested, but Guzman and at least one of his accomplices managed to escape the home through a manhole. After being chased through an underground maze of sewers, Guzman stole a car and nearly got away. He was later stopped on the highway and captured, and now faces extradition to the U.S.
On Monday, 15 minutes of dramatic video footage of the raid — code-named Operation Cisne Negro, or “Black Swan” — was obtained by Televisa, a Mexican media outlet.
