El Chapo, a mexican drug lord, recaptured

According to the New York Times, Joaquin Guzman Loera, the Mexican drug lord known as El Chapo, was recaptured after an intense gun battle in Mexico.

This was named as one of the most intense manhunts undertaken by the Mexican government. It involved every law enforcement agency in the country and even involved help for the United States.

El Chapo had been planning a movie about his life, and his contact with actors and producers ultimately led to his recapture according to authorities.

One of the people he met with was Sean Penn, an American actor, filmmaker and political activist. Penn, working for Rolling Stone magazine, spent seven hours interviewing El Chapo, not including the follow-up phone and videos according to the New York Times. Now, the information has surfaced as a story in multiple newspapers and magazines.
