The Mexican drug kingpin known as El Chapo has been re-captured, the president of Mexico has declared.

“Mission accomplished: we have him,” according to a translation of a tweet sent by President Enrique Pena Nieto reads. “I want to inform Mexicans Joaquin Guzman Loera has been arrested.”

El Chapo, or Joaquín Guzmán, escaped from prison last July, after previously escaping from federal maximum-security prison in 2001.
