The US government applauded the arrest of Mexico's most wanted man, drugs kingpin Joaquin "Shorty" Guzman.
US Attorney General Eric Holder described the arrest as "a landmark achievement, and a victory for the citizens of both Mexico and the United States."
Guzman's cartel has smuggled billions of dollars worth of cocaine, marijuana and ethamphetamines into the United States, and fought vicious turf wars with other Mexican gangs.
"The criminal activity Guzman allegedly directed contributed to the death and destruction of millions of lives across the globe through drug addiction, violence, and corruption," Holder said in a statement.
