Drugs king goes with a kiss

World | AGENCE FRANCE-PRESSE 19 Jul 2019

Once one of the world's most powerful and notorious criminals, Mexican drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman has been sentenced to life imprisonment for a host of crimes spanning a quarter of a 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.

Guzman blew a kiss to his wife Emma Coronel, who was barred from contact with him during pre-trial detention.
