Large-scale riot in Mexico - The son of a well-known drug dealer was arrested during a special operation

The capture and arrest of the son of notorious drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman triggered a fierce gun battle in the Mexican city of Culiacan on Thursday.
Sustained, heavy gunfire rocked the western city of 750,000 people in a battle that left blazing vehicles strewn across the street and sent terrified residents running for shelter.
"El Chapo," 62, was sentenced to life in prison in July for trafficking hundreds of tons of cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine and marijuana into the United States over the course of a quarter-century.
