NEW: Mexican authorities offer a reward and release a new photo of Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman
NEW: The interior minister says he's fired the head of the prison where Guzman escaped
Guzman is the boss of one of the world's deadliest drug trafficking operations
Mexico’s most notorious drug lord now has one more nefarious title: serial prison escapee.
Authorities are scrambling to find Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman after his stunning escape from a maximum-security prison west of Mexico City.
The leader of the Sinaloa cartel stepped into a shower Saturday night, crawled through a hole and vanished through a mile-long tunnel apparently built just for him.
Mexico’s government is offering a reward of up to 60 million pesos ($3.8 million) for information leading to his capture, the country’s attorney general told reporters Monday, releasing what she said was a recent photograph of the cartel kingpin.
The image shows the Sinaloa cartel chief with a shaved head and face – and without the trademark mustache he sported when authorities nabbed him last year.
