Mexico has formally started the process of extradition to the US of drug kingpin Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, who was recaptured on Friday, after he had escaped from a maximum security jail in July 2015.

The authorities said Interpol officers served him papers at the Altiplano prison, near Mexico City.

Mexico is also considering whether to investigate Hollywood actor Sean Penn, who interviewed Guzman soon after his jail break.

According to BBC News, unnamed Mexican officials have said Penn’s secret meeting helped lead them to the fugitive.
