The extradition to the United States of drug lord Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán has moved a step closer after a second Mexican judge gave the go ahead.

He is wanted on drugs charges, money laundering, and murder and is wanted by seven federal prosecutors in the US, including in Chicago, New York, Miami and San Diego..
