Mexico’s most powerful drug lord, Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, escaped from Altiplano maximum security prison in Almoloya, west of Mexico City, through a tunnel that opened into the shower area of his cell, the country’s top security official announced. It is Guzman’s second jail break in 14 years.
The kingpin was last seen in the shower area of the Altiplano prison in central Mexico late Saturday before disappearing. “The escape of Guzman was confirmed,” the National Security Commission said in a statement. –Reporting by AP and Getty
