Colombia Arrests Notorious Drug Trafficker

Colombia has captured the most wanted drug trafficker Dairo Usuga, comparing his arrest to the killing of Pablo Escobar in 1993. Usuga is the head of the dreaded Gulf Clan, an army of assassins that terrorised northern Colombia to gain control of cocaine trafficking routes to Central America and the United States. He’s accused of smuggling 73 tonnes of cocaine into the U.S. over 11 years, beginning in 2003.
