National Edition News cover for March 2, 2014 - Arrest of drug kingpin 'El Chapo' expected to have little impact on drug trade: Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman is escorted to a helicopter in handcuffs by Mexican navy marines at a navy hanger in Mexico City, Mexico, Saturday, Feb. 22, 2014. After 13 years on the run, narrow escapes from the military, law enforcement and rivals, Guzman is back in Mexican custody.

FILE - This Feb. 14, 2013 photo shows a wanted poster for Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman, a drug kingpin in Mexico, who was deemed Chicago's Public Enemy No. 1, displayed at a Chicago Crime Commission news conference. It was the first time since prohibition, when the label was created for Al Capone, that it was used to describe a criminal. Guzman, the one they called "shorty" because of his 5'6" frame, a man who grew up poor and had no formal education, would rise from a small-time Mexican marijuana producer to lead the world's most powerful drug cartel.
