Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán, the cartel kingpin who made two daring escapes from high-security prisons and lived on the run for years, has been extradited to the United States where he faces prosecution on narcotics and other charges.

The Mexican foreign ministry announced the extradition in a short statement on Thursday afternoon, saying Guzmán had exhausted his appeals against his extradition.

The US embassy in Mexico City said late on Thursday that the plane carrying Guzmán had landed at MacArthur international airport in Long Island, New York, one of the US jurisdictions where he faces charges.

The announcement comes a little over a year after his recapture in a seedy motel in the the city of Los Móchis – an arrest which Mexican authorities say came about after federal agents trailed actor Sean Penn to a clandestine meeting with the fugitive kingpin.
