Colombia’s most wanted drug trafficker arrested

Colombia’s most wanted drug trafficker has been captured by security forces after evading arrest for more than a decade. Dairo Antonio Usuga avoided imprisonment by corrupting state officials and aligning himself with combatants on the left and right. He is the alleged head of the much-feared Gulf Clan, whose army of assassins terrorised much of northern Colombia to gain control of major cocaine smuggling routes through thick jungles north to Central America.
