MEXICO : Hunt Intensifies For Narco Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman.

                                   BBC / W.GRANT / Long Read

     Perhaps the USA's most wanted man currently...is Sinaloan narco honcho...Joaquin Guzman...aka 'El Chapo'/Shorty.
     The USA has a $5mn bounty on his head....and some claim...its drones monitor the 3 mountainous states where he may be hiding out.
     Calderon's ruling PAN party covets capturing Guzman before the July presidential election.
      "Politically, catching El Chapo would be a huge boon to the administration. It would allow them to go into the election with much less criticism. People still talk of a pact between the government and the Sinaloa Cartel. Guzman's arrest would silence critics on that front," says an expert.
