'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.

    No, it wasn't because of WMDs, democracy or Iraqi oil. The real reason is much more sinister than that.
