Joaquín "El Chapo" Guzmán

Joaquín Archivaldo Guzmán Loera (Spanish pronunciation: [xoaˈkin artʃiˈβaldo ɡusˈman loˈeɾa]; born on 25 December 1954 or 4 April 1957) is a Mexican drug lord who headed the Sinaloa Cartel, a criminal organization named after the Mexican Pacific coast state of Sinaloa where it was formed. Known as "El Chapo" ("Shorty", pronounced [el ˈtʃapo]) for his 168 cm stature, he became Mexico's top drug kingpin in 2003 after the arrest of his rival Osiel Cárdenas Guillén of the Gulf Cartel, and was considered the "most powerful drug trafficker in the world" by the United States Department of the Treasury.
