Security forces in Mexico have discovered an underground tunnel aimed at crossing into the United States.

The unfinished tunnel, in the border city of Tijuana, is believed to have been built by the Sinaloa cartel with the aim of smuggling drugs into the US.

Last month Joaquin “Shorty” Guzman, the leader of the Sinaloa cartel, escaped from a maximum security jail through a 1 mile tunnel.

Guzman, one of the world’s most wanted drug dealers, is still on the run.

Officials from the federal prosecutor’s office said the tunnel was 404ft long, but came just short of crossing the border.

The tunnel entrance was hidden inside a warehouse near Tijuana’s airport

The Mexican authorities uncovered the tunnel on 30 July, but they only allowed members of the media to access it on Sunday.
