Notorious Mexican drug lord Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzman is being extradited to the US, the Mexican government confirmed on Thursday.

Mexican media reported he was at Ciudad Juarez airport.

Mr Guzman is wanted in the US on charges of smuggling vast amounts of drugs into the country.

The leader of the Sinaloa cartel was facing two extradition requests – one from California and another from Texas, where he could face the death penalty.

It is not known yet where he is being sent.

Mr Guzman has escaped from two Mexican high-security jails in the past
