Drug Trafficker on the Run

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-latin-america-34183285

Four Mexican officials are being charged with not raising the alarm of drug trafficker Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman escaping from a maximum security prison.  His son may have leaked a decoy picture detailing the location of Guzman.  Guzman is responsible for a good bit of the drugs that have been transported into the United States, therefore more special forces are being involved in finding Guzman.  In the meantime, the three officials that were present in the maximum security have been fired and more could follow suit.   Guzman escaped through his shower through a tunnel that led 1.5km outside of the prison to another building.  A newspaper in Mexico said 88% of the people believed the escape was an inside job.  Another 65% blamed the authorities’ for not paying closer attention to Guzman.  But it appears as though Guzman has been arrested at this time.
