Watch the intense moment Mexican marines stormed 'El Chapo' Guzmán's hideout

Mexican authorities released helmet-camera footage to TV station Televisa from operation “Black Swan” — the raid that eventually led to the recapture of notorious drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzmán last Friday.

The video shows the moment Marines stormed Guzmán’s hideout in Los Mochis, Mexico. The Sinaloa cartel boss had managed to avoid capture for nearly six months since his impressive escape from Mexico’s most-fortified prison.

Marines confiscated eight military rifles, one hand gun, a rocket launcher, two rockets, and four vehicles — two of which were armoured — from Guzmán’s hideout.
