A look inside El Chapo’s escape tunnel

A look inside El Chapo’s escape tunnel

Mexico's government on Tuesday broadcast security camera footage of fugitive drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman in the final moments before he escaped from a maximum security prison through a tunnel in his cell on Saturday night.

The escape of Guzman, Mexico's most notorious drug lord, is a major embarrassment for President Enrique Pena Nieto, and was the second time the drug kingpin had broken out of prison.
