Baku. 9 January. REPORT.AZ/ Captured Mexican drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman is being taken back to the maximum-security prison from where he escaped six months ago, Report informs citing the BBC.

He was paraded before cameras as he was bundled into a marines helicopter to Altiplano prison in central Mexico.
