The security agencies of the Government of Colombia are on alert after detecting the presence of several Mexican citizens, including an alleged nephew of Sinaloa Cartel leader Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman.

Information held by security agencies Colombia, indicates that the meetings between the nephew of ‘Chapo’ Guzman and the heirs of the Rastrojos and Urabeños, dating back months.
