Rare Glimpse into the life of drug lord “El Chapo”

Rare glimpse into the life of  "El Chapo" Joaquin Guzman, known as “El Chapo”, was regarded as the world’s most powerful drug smuggler. Last week, Mexican authorities finally captured him after he escaped from a Mexican prison in 2001. At least seven U.S. courts have indictments pending against him, and several are pressing for extradition. In Mexico, he faces organized-crime charges in four Mexican states and in Mexico City. He could, barring another escape, spend the rest of his life behind bars. CCTV’s John Holman gives us a rare glimpse into where the drug lord lived and worked.
