On Friday, January 8, Mexican marines launched a pre-dawn raid dubbed “Operation Black Swan” on Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman’s hideout in the Sinaloa city of Los Mochis.
Five of the drug kingpin’s associates were killed, six injured and several captured. One marine suffered a non-life threatening injury.
Guzman escaped the initial raid through storm drains and exited a manhole in the street. He and an associate carjacked a vehicle, but were eventually caught.
He had been the subject of a manhunt since escaping from Altiplano prison, 50 miles outside of Mexico City, on July 11, 2015.
The marines were wearing GoPro cameras during the raid. 15-minutes of footage has now been released.
