Mexican drug lord's arrest 'landmark achievement': US

US Attorney General Eric Holder hailed a “landmark achievement” for Mexico after Saturday’s arrest of the world’s most wanted drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman. The United States had offered a $5 million reward for information leading to the arrest of Guzman, who was captured by Mexican marines in the Pacific resort city of Mazatlan, putting an end to a 13-year manhunt. The arrest stemming from US-Mexican coordination dealt a blow to the Sinaloa cartel, Mexico’s biggest drug-trafficking organization, a blood-stained empire that stretches along the Pacific coast and smuggles drugs over the border to the United States, as well as to Europe and Asia. Holder welcomed the capture of the man blamed for much of the drug violence that has plagued Mexico for years as a “landmark achievement, and a victory for the citizens of both Mexico and the United States.”
