Mexican drug kingpin El Chapo sentenced to life in US prison

New YORK: Once one of the world’s most powerful and notorious criminals, Mexican drug lord Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman was jailed for life on Wednesday -- the mandatory sentence for a host of crimes spanning a quarter-century.
Guzman, the 62-year-old former co-leader of Mexico’s mighty Sinaloa drug cartel, was convicted in February in US federal court on a spate of charges, including smuggling hundreds of tons of cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine and marijuana into the United States. (AFP)
