    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch said on Friday that Mexican drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman will now have to answer for his alleged crimes after being recaptured.

    Lynch did not say whether the United States would seek to extradite El Chapo, who escaped from a Mexican prison last year.

    The capture of most-wanted drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman was the result of a months-long criminal and intelligence investigation, Mexican President Enrique Nieto said on Friday.

    Guzman, head of the powerful Sinaloa Cartel and who Pena Nieto first caught in February 2014, was captured in an early morning raid that killed five in the city of Los Mochis in the drug baron's native state of Sinaloa in northwest Mexico.
