Escaped Mexican Drug Lord 'El Chapo' Has Been Captured Again

Infamous Mexican drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman has been recaptured after he broke out of jail last year.

Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto tweeted the news Friday saying, "Mission accomplished: We have him."

Guzman escaped from prison, not once, but twice — one time in 2001 in a prison laundry cart, and another time in July 2015, when he crawled through a hole in his cell's shower to an underground tunnel.

Authorities claim Guzman is the head of the Sinaloa Cartel, which the U.S. Justice Department says has a vast international drug trafficking operation. (Video via Univision)
