MEXICO, DF (Ap). - The rumor about the alleged murder of Joaquin El Chapo Guzman in the region of El Peten, Guatemala, during a confrontation dissipated Friday when the Guatemalan Interior Minister, Mauricio Lopez Bonilla, publicly retracted that information. The original news was broadcast Thursday night which unleashed a wave of reactions in the media and social networks.
Interviewed after meeting with executives of the Business Coordinating Council (CCE), the official reiterated that the capture of El Chapo is a goal of the Mexican state."We hope to reply as soon as possible, the country's security forces, the Army itself, are behind different tracks that will allow us to achieve his arrest," he said upon leaving the meeting held at the Club de Industriales in Polanco.
