As the search continues for drug cartel boss, Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán Loera, Mexican authorities have released video of El Chapo, showing the moment he escaped a maximum security prison.

Mexican National Security Commissioner Monte Alejandro Rubido emphasised that law enforcement officials are committed to wrangle the prolific drug boss, saying, “All the security forces of the state of Mexico work in a coordinated manner to try to achieve quickly the capture of Guzman Loera.”

Rubido says prison employees who were on duty during Guzman Loera’s escape have been “presented to authorities to define responsibility in the case.”
