29 people died in Mexico during an attempt to capture "El Chapo's" kid.

29 people died in Mexico during an attempt to capture "El Chapo's" kid.

After a confrontation with cartel members, the Mexican government reports that at least 29 individuals, including 10 soldiers, have died in an operation to apprehend the son of imprisoned Mexican drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman.

"El Raton," or "The Mouse," Ovidio Guzman was apprehended early on Thursday in the northern state of Sinaloa and transported to Mexico City by military aircraft.

According to the authorities, ten soldiers were among those killed when the drug lord's son was arrested, which sparked cartel violence.

Defence Secretary Luis Cresencio Sandoval told reporters on Friday that "ten personnel of the military… sadly lost their lives in the line of duty," adding that 19 "lawbreakers" were also slain in the operation. 35 further soldiers were wounded by gunfire.

After Ovidio Guzman's arrest, members of the Sinaloa Cartel and their associates went on the rampage, attacking security personnel, torching cars, and blocking roads around the Pacific coastline state.

The Sinaloa capital city of Culiacan, where the potent drug cartel "El Chapo" presided before being apprehended in 2016 and extradited to the United States in 2017, is where the most of the bloodshed took place.

The operations on Thursday resulted in the arrest of twenty-one additional people, according to Sandoval, who also noted that no reports of civilian fatalities had been made.

Ovidio Guzman, 32, was apprehended after six months of intelligence operations to find him, according to the government. He is currently being held at a maximum security federal jail.

According to Sandoval, as the Sinaloa Cartel initiated its operation to free Ovidio Guzman, two air force aircraft and a passenger plane that was due to take departure from Culiacan airport were also damaged.

According to Sandoval, the air force planes "had to make an emergency landing" after suffering "a substantial number of collisions." Nobody was hurt.

In the US, "El Chapo," which is short for "Shorty," is currently incarcerated for life for bringing hundreds of tons of drugs into the nation during a 25-year period.

His cartel is still among the most powerful in Mexico, but Washington accuses it of using the opioid crisis as cover to saturate neighborhoods with fentanyl, a synthetic drug that is approximately 50 times more potent than heroin.

According to the US Department of State, Ovidio Guzman and one of his brothers are suspected of conspiring to distribute cocaine and marijuana while also managing around a dozen methamphetamine labs in Sinaloa.

The agency also said that he reportedly gave the go-ahead to kill informants, a drug dealer, and a Mexican musician who declined to sing at his wedding.

Just a few days before meeting with Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador in Mexico City for two days of negotiations, US President Joe Biden and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Ovidio Guzman was detained.
