One of the world's most wanted drug barons, Joaquin Guzman, known as El Chapo or "Shorty", has been arrested in Mexico.

He was the leader of the Sinaloa cartel, which smuggles huge amounts of illegal drugs into the US.

"Shorty" Guzman had been on the run since escaping a high-security prison in a laundry basket in 2001.

He was arrested in Sinaloa state, in a joint operation with US anti-drugs forces.
