The Mexican drug lord Joaquin ‘El Chapo’ Guzman has been found guilty of all ten counts at his drug trafficking trial in New York.

He now faces life in prison after the verdict, accused of leading the powerful Sinaloa drugs cartel, which became one of the biggest suppliers of drugs to the United States.

Jurors heard more than 200 hours of testimony, including allegations by his former henchmen.
