Gun battle thwarts Mexico attempt to arrest son of ‘El Chapo’

A ferocious gun battle between security forces and drug cartel gunmen raged late into the night on Thursday on the streets of the capital of Mexico’s western Sinaloa state, after a failed police operation to capture one of the sons of jailed drug kingpin Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman.
Ovidio Guzman escaped arrest after security forces were surrounded by heavily-armed cartel fighters.
