A complaint of sleep deprivation is said to be behind a request by the captured drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman to be quickly extradited from Mexico to the US.

A lawyer for the prisoner says guards at a jail in Altiplano west of Mexico City are keeping his client awake and he is now desperate.

Jose Refugio Rodriguez says Guzman told him to negotiate with US authorities for a lighter sentence and confinement at a medium security prison.

Rodriguez said: “He has reached the limit. It is an act of desperation.”
