Colombian drug trafficker captured after more than a decade on the run

News Correspondent

Colombia’s most sought after drug lord has been captured.

The country’s president likened the arrest of Dario Antonio Úsuga, better known as Otoniel to the capture of Pablo Escobar three decades ago.

Otoniel was detained in his rural hideout in Antioquia in the north-west of the country, near the Panama border and then transported by plane to the capital Bogota where he is now being held.
