'El Chapo': World's most wanted drug lord or folk hero?

As the Mexican government tries to recapture Joaquin Guzman, some in his home state of Sinaloa see him as their saviour.

    A manhunt is still on in Mexico to find the world's most wanted drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman, who escaped from a high security prison 10 days ago.

    As the government is trying to catch him, some in his home state of Sinaloa see him more as a hero than a criminal.

    But the loyalty is mixed with fear. Guzman is a key player in a brutal cartel war which has left tens of thousands dead or disappeared.
