FBI, DEA Meet Mexico Agents Over Guzman Escape

U.S. officials met with agents of the Mexican attorney general's office this week to discuss the recent escape from prison of drug kingpin Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman and coordinate efforts to recapture him. Mexico has long sought to maintain its independence from the United States on matters of national security, but has taken fire from critics for not having previously extradited Guzman to the United States. But no announcement of a formal request was ever made public and the Mexican attorney general's office said it had no plans to hand him over because he would serve his time in Mexico.
