Mexican drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman has been recaptured and sent back to the maximum-security prison he escaped from six months ago, according to a BBC report.
He was paraded before cameras before being bundled into a helicopter to Altiplano prison in central Mexico.
He escaped from there in July through a tunnel dug in the showers.
Guzman was arrested on Friday in the city of Los Mochis in his home state of Sinaloa – which he had come to dominate through the drugs cartel he led.
During the early-morning raid, he managed to flee through a drain but was later caught by marines in a shootout.
Six people, including one marine, are reported to have been killed.
Part of the reason he was tracked down was because he contacted actors and producers in the hope of making a film about his life, Mexico’s Attorney General Arely Gomez said.
Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto described Guzman’s arrest as a “victory for the rule of law”.
