People fleeing ‘El Chapo’s’ Sinaloa area fearing more violent clashes

Authorities say that people living in the northern Mexican state of Sinaloa where drug kingpin Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman was born are fleeing their homes out of fear of more violent clashes and attacks by armed groups.

Since Guzman’s hometown of La Tuna, Baridaguato, Sinaloa was targeted by an armed group that raided the drug kingpin’s mother’s home and forced scores of families to leave their homes, as reported by local authorities.

State deputy prosecutor Jesus Martin Robles said Friday June 17 that several communities are affected in the Baridaguato municipality where Guzman was born, including his mother Consuelo Loera’s community of La Tuna.

Baridaguato Mayor Mario Valenzuela has told local media that about 150 families recently fled their homes.

Mexico’s northeast mountains have traditionally been controlled by the Sinaloa Cartel headed by Guzman. He is behind bars awaiting extradition to the United States. And apparently other criminal groups are fighting to take over the region.
