A flashlight illuminates a judicial worker as he shines a torch into an area of the tunnel connected to Altiplano Federal Penitentiary and used by drug lord Joaquin 'El Chapo' Guzman to escape, in Almoloya de Juarez, on the outskirts of Mexico City, July 14, 2015. Reuters Photographer Edgard Garrido: "After photographing Mexican drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman when recaptured last year, “El Chapo”, or "Shorty", escaped again earlier this month, this time through a tunnel from the high-security prison El Altiplano. It was only after waiting more than two days that the authorities let us see the tunnel’s exit in a warehouse. Two metres down was a basement with buckets, ropes, dug earth and a pulley above the tunnel exit. I had five minutes to take photos. Next day I was able to go into the tunnel, I went down to the basement area and started to clamber down a rickety ladder about 8 metres long. The darkness was intense and I couldn’t see my feet. Air was in short supply. At the bottom I looked for details of the adapted motorbike which allowed “El Chapo” to make a speedy escape through the tunnel. After a while we also got access to his prison cell. Security was extremely tight. After 10 minutes walking through a maze of staircases and corridors, we arrived. Two minutes for photos: his unmade bed, a desk. A cement wall divided the cell from the shower, his point of escape. I saw the security camera in a corner of the cell and tried to figure out the two blind spots mentioned by the authorities. With Guzman still on the run, those blind spots could tell quite a story."
