Mexico charges Drug Lord

MEXICO CITY (AP) - Mexican drug kingpin Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman is being held in a maximum security prison west of Mexico City, and a judge has until Tuesday to decide whether a trial is warranted. Guzman has been formally charged under a 2009 Mexican indictment for cocaine trafficking.

That could set in motion a legal process that makes it unlikely he will soon face charges pending against him in the U.S. Guzman's lawyers have filed a petition seeking to block any extradition request from the United States.
