Mexico City, Mexico (AFP) — Mexico on Thursday extradited drug kingpin Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman to the United States, the government said.

Guzman was handed over to US authorities after the Supreme Court and a court of appeals rejected his latest bids to avoid extradition, the foreign ministry said in a statement.
