Children of Mexican former drug lord El Chapo build makeshift school for poor

CULIACAN, Mexico: The children of former drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman helped build a makeshift school near the Mexican city of Culiacan for families who have no access to online classes during the coronavirus pandemic, residents said.

Now serving a life sentence in a U.S. prison, El Chapo is revered as a fallen folk hero and a community benefactor by some in his home state Sinaloa - despite the drug gang he headed unleashing violence in the state and elsewhere.

Some of El Chapo’s children, meanwhile, are following in his footsteps and have risen up the ranks of the Sinaloa cartel. - Reuters \
