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.
The process still awaits approval of Mexico’s foreign ministry and it can be appealed.

Guzmán was arrested in January after almost six months on the run following his escape from a maximum security prison through a mile-long tunnel that opened to the floor of his shower.

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..

He had already escaped once before in 2001 and spent more than a decade as one of the world’s most wanted fugitives until he was recaptured in 2014.

Which will come first: El Chapo's next escape, or his extradition to the US? https://t.co/tGtvDHKdSopic.twitter.com/WxfhNemWLB
