Mexican drug boss 'El Chapo' Guzman, 23 members of Sinaloa Cartel indicted in Texas

The Greenfield Daily Reporter: "Federal officials unsealed a new federal indictment Tuesday against Mexico's most-wanted drug boss Joaquin Guzman Loera, known as "El Chapo," leader of the Sinaloa cartel and one of the world's richest men.

The 14-count indictment was returned April 11, but federal officials announced it Tuesday in El Paso. The 28-page indictment names Guzman and "co-leader of the cartel" Ismael Zambada Garcia, along with 22 other men. It alleges they were involved in the operations and management of the cartel, which they say has moved thousands of kilograms of cocaine and marijuana into the U.S. and used the profits to wage war against their rivals and the Mexican government." read more
