US prosecutors to seek Mexican drug lord's extradition

US prosecutors are seeking to extradite Mexican drug kingpin Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman to the United States to stand trial, officials said Sunday. Guzman was arrested Saturday after more than a decade on the run, bringing to an abrupt end the reign of a man accused of being behind much of the drug violence that has killed more than 77,000 people in Mexico during the past seven years. The United States, which was involved in the operation that finally snared him, had offered a $5 million reward for information leading to his capture, with several indictments in multiple cities from New York to San Diego. “We plan to seek his extradition,” Robert Nardoza, a spokesman for the US Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of New York, told AFP.
