BREAKING NEWS: Drug lord El Chapo found guilty on all counts in US trial


Drug lord Joaquin Guzman has been convicted on all 10 counts after a trial in New York.

Guzman, also known as ‘El Chapo’, was extradited to the US in 2017.

Part of Mexico’s Sinaloa cartel, he went from being a small time marijuana smuggler to being the head of the “largest drug trafficking organisation in the world”.

According to US authorities, the cartel smuggled around 154 tonnes of cocaine into the US, as well as heroin and methamphetamine – earning Guzman and his associates $14bn (£11bn).

Sky’s Hannah Thomas-Peter explains the story of his trial.
