Mexico government says it has launched an all-out manhunt for drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, who has escaped from a maximum-security prison through a 1.5km tunnel, in his second jail break in 14 years.

President Enrique Pena Nieto reacted to the incident by saying he wanted a full investigation into the jailbreak to uncover whether any public officials helped the head of the notorious Sinaloa Cartel.

“This represents without a doubt an affront to the Mexican state,” Pena Nieto said while on a previously scheduled trip to France. “But I also have confidence in the institutions of the Mexican state … that they have the strength and determination to recapture this criminal.”
